"Pray for peace for the world, wisdom for government leaders, and faith and unity for families."

At the end of the general audience, in greetings to Polish pilgrims, Pope Francis recalled Monday’s celebration of Our Lady of the Rosary.

“At her apparition in Gietrzwałd, Poland,” the pope said, “the Virgin recommended: ‘It is my desire that you pray the rosary every day.'”

The pope added that Our Lady assured that the graces of the Rosary would be “salvific, and would bring people to the happiness of heaven.”
