Angelus: say the Rosary, pray for Missionaries


Taking his queue from the feast of the Blessed Virgin of the Most Holy Rosary on 7 October, Benedict XVI said “Our Lady” invites us to “rediscover the beauty of this prayer”. Even the “beloved John Paul II was a great apostle of the Rosary: we remember him on his knees with the rosary beads in his hands, immersed in contemplation of Christ.” The pope added: “The rosary is a contemplative and Christ-centred prayer, inseparable from meditation of the Sacred Scripture. It is the prayer of the Christian who advances in the pilgrimage of faith, following Jesus, preceded by Mary.” This is why Benedict XVI urged one and all to “say the Rosary this month in families, in communities and in parishes for the pope’s intentions, for the mission of the Church and for peace in the world.”

A bit pedantic, but its cue.
