• In the Memory of Maria Blanca
The Rosary Network community of prayer is a New York-based nonprofit initiative to spread worldwide the devotion of daily praying and meditating upon the Holy Rosary, following Our Lady of Fatima’s message (*). Our mission is to revive the Rosary of Mary in the 21st century.
The project is dedicated to the memory of María Blanca, Blanki, González de Amigot, who died on October 28, 2021, after a painful disease and a courageous stay at the ICU. She emptied herself by embracing the Cross and experiencing the Passion of Christ. She offered her suffering for the conversion of souls. [In the picture.]
By praying the Rosary, you will increasingly experience real joy, hope, and a spirit of fraternity and mercy.
Today, we are hosting the #1 daily Rosary podcast on Apple and Google smartphones as well as on Spotify, Overcast, and Anchor, and four other platforms. As of December 12, 2020, Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, The Rosary Network’s prayer was daily followed in over countries as well as the 50 states of the Union. [Update: as of September 2021, the number grew to 125 countries].
The video version of the podcast is broadcasted every day at 7:30 pm ET on YouTube.
This world apostolate was founded by Catholic laypeople in the New York area in January 2020. It is led by Spanish-American CEO, EdTech entrepreneur, and journalist/writer Mikel Amigot, under the guidance of faithful Catholic priests, such as Fr Miguel Bernal, from St. Roch Parish in Greenwich, Connecticut, Fr. Ian Jeremiah, of St. Ann in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and Fr. Germán Martínez, in Madrid, Spain. We follow the teachings of the Catholic Church reflected in Catechism, trying to spread worldwide the merciful love of Jesus and the maternal care of the Virgin Mary. Mikel is just a CEO who prays the Rosary.
Our first Rosary online was streamed in New York on March 21, 2020, in the midst of the COVID pandemic. Since then, the Virgin Mary gave us the grace to pray Her Most Holy Rosary every single day, for sixteen months without interruption. As Fr Miguel Bernal said, “this is a work from Above”.
We organize and promote Rosary meditation and prayer events, along with educational activities. An example is the Resources section on this website, along with our daily comments, a video course, and the ebook “The Rosary: A Gift From Heaven”.
Anyone is welcome; the Rosary of Mary is for anyone, no matter what creed, culture, or sociological background you have. No economic contributions or donations are required. Currently, the funding comes exclusively from Mikel A. and his family.
What we need is your effort to convert and proclaim the merciful love of Jesus to every single human being. Please help us to spread the devotion to the Holy Rosary.
We meet Jesus Christ through the Blessed Virgin Mary, as the mystery of the Wedding at Canna taught us. We need to be a Rosarian to be Marian, and Marian to be Christian!
As Sister Lucia, the last Fatima seer, said: “There is no problem, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot solve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary.”
The Holy Rosary is for everyone; it brings the grace and mercy of Jesus Christ and Immaculate Mary and opens the door to Heaven. Let’s be saints and change the world through prayer and acts of charity!
Hail Mary Most Pure,
Conceived Without Sin
Ave María Purísima,
Sin Pecado Concebida

(*) In Fatima, Portugal, the Mother of God made a call for a renewed fidelity to prayer and penance–which basically is the message of the New Testament. The requests of Our Lady of Fatima were essentially three: daily pray the Rosary–including the Fatima prayer after each mystery–, make sacrifices and penance for the conversion of sinners, and follow Jesus’ wish to establish devotion to Her immaculate heart.
Four decades later, In Garabandal, Spain, Our Lady of Mount Carmel asked to lead good lives, make many sacrifices, give much importance to the Eucharist, and visit frequently the Blessed Sacrament.
At The Rosary Network, we try to abide by these requests from Our Lady.
