FAITHFUL FROM ALL THE WORLD UNITE IN PRAYER OF ROSARY

Vatican City, 9 (NE) With the presence of the image of the Virgin of Fatima, Pope John Paul II presided on Saturday the prayer of the Rosary, which united in prayer faithful from 150 countries. In St. Peter's Square, people from all over the world gathered to pray in communion with the Pope and the entire Church. Each mystery of the Rosary was presided by a group representing a continent. The last mystery, representing Europe, was presided by Sister Lucia dos Santos, one of the three children witnesses of the apparition of Fatima, and sisters from her monastery in Coimbra, Portugal, through a satellite link-up. "There is no century", said the Pope in his brief address after the prayer, "in which Mary has not made her presence be felt, giving to faithful… light, hope and comfort".
