Pope Francis says “Pray the Rosary”
Pope Francis called for Catholics to pray the Rosary for peace on Sunday. In remarks to pilgrims and tourists gathered in St. Peter’s Square to pray the Regina coeli with him on the Fourth Sunday of Easter, the Holy Father said, “[I]n this month of May, let us pray the Rosary in particular for peace.”
“Please!” he said, “let us pray the Rosary for peace, as the Virgin of Fatima asked us to do.”
Pope Francis is scheduled to travel to Fatima, in Portugal, this weekend, to lead celebrations marking the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Blessed Lady there.
