Invoking the Refuge of Christians: Saturday, September 19, 2015

J.M.J. "10. And now it is a pleasure also to recall that this same Predecessor of Ours (Pope Pius XII) urged all the faithful to pious recitation of the Rosary during October in the Encyclical Ingruentium malorum. We would like to repeat one admonition from that Encyclical: 'Turn in spirit with ever greater confidence to the Virgin Mother of God, the constant refuge of Christians in adversity, since she 'has been made a source of salvation for the human race'.'"

--Saint John XXIII, Encyclical Grata Recordatio (September 26, 1959).
