Pope Francis Requests the Rosary and the St. Michael Prayer

Pope Francis has requested that the faithful recite the Rosary and the Prayer to St. Michael during the month of October (Italian, English).

His Holiness can rest assured that these prayers will continue to be said by me and I encourage others to do the same.

Did anyone else catch a little gem in the notification from the Holy See’s press office? It confirmed that the prayer to St. Michael was indeed composed by Leo XIII. I am not entirely too sure if the Vatican has ever acknowledged this fact in a public setting. If it had, great, if not, then we now have it.

In the meantime, the second edition of Pope Leo XIII and the Prayer to St. Michael is now available. Be sure to pick up a copy!
