Pope Urges Faithful to Pick Up Their Rosaries
During this month of May dedicated to Mary, Pope Francis has invited the faithful to pick up their rosaries and call upon her in a special way. The Pontiff urged the faithful to invoke Mary's intercession, “so that the Lord may grant mercy and peace to the Church and to all the world," and encouraged them to take special care to pray the rosary during this month of May.
"A Christian who withdraws into himself, hiding all that the Lord has given him, is not a Christian! I would ask the many young people present to be generous with their God-given talents for the good of others, the Church and our world." - Pope Francis
"Difficulties and trials are part of the path that leads to God's glory. Therefore we must not be discouraged! We have the power of the Holy Spirit to overcome these trials!"
- Pope Francis (April 29, 2013)
The Christian proclaims the Gospel with his witness, rather than with words."
