Pope dispenses 'medicinal' rosaries
Catholic World News - November 18, 2013
At his Angelus audience on Sunday, November 17, Pope Francis distributed 20,000 rosaries packed in small vials to resemble medicine.
“It is a spiritual medicine called Misericordina,” the Pope explained to his audience. He remarked that the beads could be used to recite the Divine Mercy chaplet, to combat spiritual diseases with “love, forgiveness, and brotherhood.”
The small packages came with an instructional leaflet. “Can be used once a day, but in case of emergency can be taken as much as the soul needs,” the leaflet said.
