Request from Pope Francis

7th Oct 2019


Pope Francis has asked all Catholics to pray the Rosary daily during the month of October, asking Mary and St. Michael the Archangel to intercede for the protection of the Church in a moment of “Spiritual turbulence.” The Pope said that recitation of the Rosary would invoke Mary’s intercession, placing the Church under her “Protective Mantle.”

The Holy Father has also asked that the recitation of the Holy Rosary during the month of October, conclude with the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel.

“St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; may God rebuke him we humbly pray, and do thou O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
