Pope emphasizes importance of the Rosary

October 27, 2016

At the conclusion of his October 26 general audience, Pope Francis emphasized the importance of the Rosary.

“We are nearing the end of the month of October, dedicated to the prayer of the Rosary,” he told pilgrims gathered in St. Peter’s Square.

“This is a summary of divine mercy,” he continued. “In the mysteries of the Rosary, with Mary, we contemplate the life of Jesus that radiates the mercy of the Father Himself. Let us rejoice in his love and forgiveness, receiving it in strangers and those in need, and let us live every day of His Gospel.”

The Pope later added:

At the end of this month of October I would like to recommend the prayer of the Rosary. This simple Marian prayer shows you, dear young people, the way to interpret God’s will in your lives; love this prayer, dear sick people, as it brings consolation to the mind and to the heart. May it become for you, dear newlyweds, a privileged moment of spiritual intimacy in your new family.
