Pope Francis entrusted to the Blessed Mother people suffering from wars and conflicts around the world, and invited the faithful to rediscover the great value of praying the Rosary.

He made the appeal at his Wednesday General Audience in St. Peter's Square.

The Pope recalled that Wednesday, 8 May, marks the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary and falls in the month of May, which is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Today, he noted, the Church raises the prayer of supplication to Our Lady of the Rosary of Pompeii.

"I invite everyone," he insisted, "to invoke Mary's intercession, so that the Lord may grant peace to the whole world, especially to the dear and martyred Ukraine, and to Palestine, Israel, and Myanmar."
