Pope Francis encourages Italians to pray the rosary (Luminous Mysteries) today (3/19) at 9 pm Roman Time (4 pm EDT ).

I make my own the appeal of the Italian Bishops who in this health emergency have promoted a moment of prayer for the whole country. Every family, every faithful, every Religious Community, all united spiritually tomorrow at 9:00 pm for the recitation of the Rosary, with the Mysteries of Light. I will accompany you from here. Mary, Mother of God, Health of the Sick, leads us to the luminous and transfigured face of Jesus Christ and to His Heart. We turn to Her with the prayer of the Rosary, under the loving gaze of Saint Joseph, Custodian of the Holy Family and of our families. And we ask him to guard our family, our families, in a special way, in particular the sick and the persons taking care of the sick: the doctors, the men and women nurses, the volunteers, who risk their lives in this service.

Let's join the Pope and Italians and pray with them!!!

Good idea. Also, priests in Poland march through streets to protect the areas against the virus.,35771,25804118,czas-epidemii-ksiadz-przemierza-ulice-z-monstrancja-a-radny.html

Pope Francis encourages Italians to pray

Did he mention how we should build bridges, not walls, and that nobody should be turned away? And that we should share are vast medical resources with the world? Especially those 100,000 ICU beds?

So, here is my advice for the pope: shut up, you stupid Latino commie.

No, he didn't say any of that. Here's a link to yesterday's General Audience address:

I read it and could not disagree more with him in every single paragraph.
"Mercy" promotes evil. Vengeance stops evil. Vengeance feels good.
The guy is basically saying that when the victim's family rejoices upon hearing the guilty verdict, they are un-Christian. I have shocking news for this naive Latino commie: most men would like to execute their daughters' rapists and murders. I would pay to do it.

I don't read that at all. We could extrapolate the meaning within each paragraph, but that's not the purpose of this thread.

The purpose is an invitation to pray in solidarity.

Get to praying the rosary... that means even you infidels!!! :)
