This Sunday, during the traditional Sunday Angelus in St. Peter’s Square, Pope Francis prescribed to his millions of Catholic followers a ‘spiritual medicine,’ named ‘Mercy’.
“I want to recommend you all a new medicine, now some of you will think the Pope is a pharmacist,” said Francis, and then specify that it was a “medicine” for the spirit and the soul.
From the window of the papal palace, Francis showed while smiling a little box which inside contained rosaries and Divine Mercy prayer cards, while a group of volunteers distributed the medicine to the assembled pilgrims which it is aimed to provide “spiritual support for the soul and to spread the love, forgiveness and brotherhood.”
“Do not forget to take it because it is good for the heart, soul and life (…) brings mercy to the soul, with a a lot of tranquility to the heart. Their effectiveness is guaranteed by the words of Jesus,” said the Jesuit Pope.
“It can be used in both children and adults, as often as necessary,” pray the instructions, which says that the intake foresees the “praying the crown of Divine Mercy, promoted by St. Faustina Kowalsk” and that the prospectus”; and states that the prospectus “has no side effects or contraindications.”
