Pope Francis has supported the proposal of the Italian Episcopal Conference to pray the Rosary today, March 19, at 9 p.m. These are his words:
“I make my own the call of the Italian Bishops who, in this health emergency, have promoted a moment of prayer throughout the country. Every family, every faithful, every religious community: all united spiritually tomorrow at 9 pm to pray the Rosary with the Luminous Mysteries”.
“To the luminous and transfigured face of Christ and to his Heart Mary, Mother of God, leads us, the health of the sick, to whom we turn with the prayer of the Rosary, under the loving gaze of St. Joseph, guardian of the Holy Family and of our families”.
Here you have the link to the video that the Pope has recorded – on this feast of St. Joseph – encouraging us to pray together.
We encourage you all to join Francis too and to spread it among your contacts.
