Rosary With the Holy Father

| | Comments (0)


Tomorrow at 4:00 p.m. Our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI will lead university students and young people from all over Europe in praying the Holy Rosary in the Paul VI Hall of the Vatican. Santa Croce in Gerusalemme will be sending a delegation of postulants, novices, and simply professed monks.

There is great love for the Holy Rosary here. It is not uncommon to see young people praying their beads. I am inclined to attribute it to the example and influence of Pope John Paul II, but also to the enduring spiritual legacy of Blessed Bartolo Longo and the strong popular devotion to the Madonna of the Rosary of Pompei.
