The World Council of the Marianist Family has released this resource for the Marianist World Day of Prayer on October 13, 2019.

Every year, the World Council of the Marianist Family, which consists of representatives from each branch of the Marianist Family--the Society of Mary (SM), the Daughters of Mary Immaculate (FMI), the Alliance Mariale (AM) and Marianist Lay persons (MLCs)--choose a day near the Feast of Our Lady of the Pillar (October 12th) for Marianists around the world to join together in prayer related to a different Marian site in the world.

This year's Marianist World Day of Prayer centers on the Marian shrine of Our Lady of Atacora in Benin. The World Council has released a document that talks about the shrine and includes a prayer for the people in Benin and the Marianists around the world.
