Some Italians took “praying the rosary” to new heights during the coronavirus crisis. A priest in Rome posted a moving video of a giant rosary made from helium balloons.

It was released into the sky as people on the street and standing on their balconies clapped.

An interesting tidbit from the priest: Latin for rosary is “corona.”
