Holy See Press Office Communiqué, 29.09.2018
The Holy Father has decided to invite all the faithful, of all the world, to pray the Holy Rosary every day, during the entire Marian month of October, and thus to join in communion and in penitence, as the people of God, in asking the Holy Mother of God and Saint Michael Archangel to protect the Church from the devil, who always seeks to separate us from God and from each other. He invites us also to conclude recitation of the rosary with the ancient invocation “Sub tuum praesidum = ‘We fly to thy protection” and “Prayer to Saint Michael Archangel”

“Fatima – The Ultimate Mystery” 
Pope Francis requests us to pray the Rosary every day in the month of October.  Now come and see the unique approach of this film.  It shows the message of Fatima not as belonging to the past, but rather as ongoing divine intervention that has changed our recent history and will still influence the world’s future.  This will be screened on 22nd October in St Helen’s Langside church hall. Time: 7pm Rosary, 7.30pm film.  Tickets can be obtained from Pauline bookshop, Glasgow, St Helen’s parish or  (suggested ticket donation £4.00).
