Pontiff Urges Youth to Pray Daily Rosary

VATICAN CITY, OCT. 6, 2010 (Zenit.org).- Benedict XVI is noting Thursday’s feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, encouraging the faithful to appreciate this traditional prayer.

The Pope spoke of the rosary today at the conclusion of the general audience, when he offered his customary greeting to youth, the sick and newlyweds.

“October is the month of the holy rosary, which invites us to appreciate this prayer so dear to the tradition of the Christian people,” he said.

The Holy Father went on to invite youth “to make the rosary your daily prayer.” He encouraged those suffering from illness to use the rosary “to grow in confident abandonment in God’s hands.”

Finally, he exhorted newlyweds “to make of the rosary a constant contemplation of the mysteries of Christ.”
