Statement from Bishop Strickland

Bishop Joseph E. Strickland of the Diocese of Tyler, Texas, encourages all of us to participate in the Marian Blue Wave and to hear the call of the Blessed Virgin Mary to step away from our busy lives to reflect, pray, and meditate. Throughout history, the Blessed Virgin Mary has actively interceded for us. She has specifically asked us to pray the Rosary, to spend time in prayer, and to refocus on who we are and who God calls us to be.
