Pope invites faithful to pray the Rosary

Catholic World News - October 08, 2012

Encouraging the faithful to “renew the prayer of the Rosary in the upcoming Year of Faith,” Pope Benedict XVI devoted his October 7 Sunday Angelus address to the Rosary.

October 7 is the memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary.

“With the Rosary, we allow ourselves to be guided by Mary, model of faith, in meditating on the mysteries of Christ, and day after day we are helped to assimilate the Gospel, so that it shapes all our lives,” Pope Benedict said. “Therefore, in the wake of my predecessors, especially Blessed John Paul II, who ten years ago gave us the Apostolic Letter Rosarium Virginis Mariae, I invite you to pray the Rosary personally, in the family and in the community, learning at the school of Mary, which leads us to Christ, the living centre of our faith.”
