The text, published on the occasion of the Pope’s trip to Pompeii on Tuesday, is to serve as «support and instrument of the prayer to which the Holy Father dedicated this year,» a statement of the dicastery explained.

«Let us pray in this decade for gypsies, so that […] they will understand their vocation and mission in the Church and society,» says one of the intentions mentioned in the guide.

There is also a prayer for «the young people of the circus world,» so that they will «be able to obtain from the rich artistic and cultural patrimony of their predecessors the treasures that constitute joy,» so to reveal to all «the beauty and goodness of God which is reflected in the face of Christ.»

The booklet introduces each mystery of the rosary with a scriptural reference and a quote from a papal address.

It also includes a prayer dedicated to a specific category, such as seamen, those in civil aviation, students in foreign countries, workers in tourism sectors, and those involved in pilgrimages and road maintenance.
