Today, Pope Francis in the presence of his predecessor whom he personally invited, unveiled and blessed a new bronze statue dedicated to St Michael in the Vatican gardens. He placed the Vatican and by inference the whole Catholic Church under the protection of St Joseph, foster father of Jesus and his protector during the early years of His earthly journey and St Michael the Archangel, defender of God in heaven.

The battle between good and evil continues on earth, so we must pray that war is replaced by peace, violence is confronted with dialogue, corruption met with honesty and that the peace of Jesus Christ be showered on the world and all humanity.
