Vatican City, 17 November 2013 (VIS) – After the Angelus prayer, the Pope greeted the faithful and, mentioning that this Sunday was “World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims”, encouraged prudence on the roads and respect for traffic regulations.
Francis proposed to those present in the square a way of consolidating the effects of the Year of Faith, which is now drawing to a close. “It is a spiritual medicine called 'Misericordina'”, he explained. “It is kept in a box which some volunteers will distribute as you leave the square. It is a Rosary, with which you can pray the 'Chaplet of Divine Mercy' … a spiritual help for spreading love, forgiveness and brotherhood”.
