(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis drew attention to the fact October is the Month of Missions during his General Audience on Wednesday.

He invoked the Virgin Mary, Queen of the Missions, in his traditional special blessing to young people, the sick, and new spouses; inviting them to pray intensely to her during this month.

“Dear young people, be missionaries of the Gospel in your circles with the mercy and tenderness of Jesus; Dear sick and infirm people, offer your suffering for the conversion of those faraway, and of the indifferent; and you, dear newlyweds, be missionaries in your family by announcing with Word and example the Gospel of salvation,” said Pope Francis.
