Priest Calls for Daily Rosary and Holy Hours to Stop Revolutionary Maoist Party in Nepal

Agenzia Fides: In a country paralysed by three days of general strikes, Christians pull out their “special weapon”: the Rosary beads. “We pray to the Blessed Virgin Mary to intercede that peace may prevail and bloodshed be avoided, that our rulers may be illuminated and reach a political compromise to end the crisis”, Fr Pius Perumana, pro-Vicar Apostolic of Nepal, told Fides Agency. The local Catholic Church has called on the faithful to “live these days with serenity, and with the optimism of faith and hope, to recite a daily Rosary throughout the month of May, traditionally dedicated to Our Lady, the Blessed Virgin Mary”, the priest said.
