Recalling that the centenary of the Marian apparitions in Fatima, Portugal concludes on October 13, 2017, Pope Francis invited all faithful to pray the rosary for peace.

At the General Audience he presided at St. Peter’s Square today, Oct. 11, 2017, the Pope spoke of this anniversary.

​​”Looking back to the Mother of the Lord and Queen of Missions, I invite everyone, especially in this month of October, to pray the holy rosary for peace in the world.”

“May prayer move the most rebellious souls,” he wished, “so that they may become people who have banned from their hearts, words and gestures, violence,” and that they “may take care of the common home.”

‘Nothing is impossible if we address God in prayer. All of us can be peacemakers’ (Message of the 50th World Day of Peace, 1 January 2017).
