Pope Francis on Sunday surprised everyone by prescribing some medicine to the people after the Angelus.
He prescribed to them “MISERICORDINA.” Pope Francis gave medication boxes with a Rosary inside and directed all to pray the Divine Mercy chaplet with it.
I think this is an awesome way to spread the message to pray. He is using imagery to remind the people that the real medicine for man is prayer. All of our stresses in life, our illnesses etc stem from our broken spirituality. According to studies, prayer helps in physical and psychological healing. It increases happiness.
Pope Francis is using new ways to evangelizes; ways that the world is not accustom to seeing from the Pope. I am happy he is doing this and hope he continues.
