Pope’s message at Rosary for protection of our families: Let’s stay firm in what really matters

This is what he said:

Every family, every member of the faithful, every religious community: All of us spiritually united tomorrow (Thursday) at 9 pm in praying the Rosary, the Luminous Mysteries. Mary — Mother of God, and Health of the Sick, to whom we direct the Rosary, under the loving gaze of St. Joseph, Protector of the Holy Family, and our families — brings us to the luminous and transfigured Face of Christ and his Heart.And we ask that he especially protect our families, in particular the sick and those who care for them: doctors, nurses, and volunteers, who risk their lives in this service.

And speaking of St. Joseph, the Holy Father recommended: Call on him always, especially in difficult times, and entrust your lives to this great saint.
