Pope John Paul I

Today is the 31st anniversary of the calling home of Pope John Paul I. Let us all remember him in our prayers!

Before his short reign, as Albino Cardinal Luciani he beautifilly defended the Rosary in a 1973 homily on the topic:

The Rosary is an impoverished prayer? What then would be a 'rich prayer'? The Rosary is a procession of Paters, the prayer taught by Jesus; of Aves, the salutation of God to the Virgin by means of the Angel; of Glorias, the praise of the Most Holy Trinity.

Requiem æternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis.
