Pope Francis’ Invitation

The Holy Father invites the faithful, of all the world, to pray the Holy Rosary every day, during the entire Marian month of October, and thus to join in communion and in penitence, as the people of God, in asking the Holy Mother of God and Saint Michael Archangel to protect the Church from the devil, who always seeks to separate us from God and from each other. He asks that following the recitation of the Rosary the prayer to St Michael the Archangel be said: –

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.

Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.

May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou,

O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan,

and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.
