Against the devil who wants to divide the Church
· At the Angelus in the aftermath of the festive meeting with young people, the Pope renews the invitation to recite the Rosary ·
Pope Francis renewed the invitation to recite the Rosary during the month of October to “ward off the attacks of the devil who wants to divide the Church”. The new appeal was made at the conclusion of the Angelus on Sunday, 7 October, in Saint Peter’s Square. The Holy Father greeted the faithful gathered at the Shrine of Pompei for the Supplication to Our Lady of Pompeii, led by Cardinal Mario Zenari, Apostolic Nuncio in Syria. He renewed his invitation to the faithful from all over the world to recite the Rosary every day, concluding it with the prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel. Previously Francis had dedicated his reflection to the Gospel passage of Saint Mark on “the dignity of marriage as a union of love that implies fidelity”.
On the previous afternoon, in the Paul VI Hall, the Holy Father, together with the Synod Father, had participated in the meeting with young people.
