(Latin: Last year)
Encyclical letter of Pope Leo XIII
|Date||30 August 1884|
|Argument||On the Recitation of the Rosary|
|Encyclical number||15 of 85 of the pontificate|
Pope Leo reiterated the exhortation expressed in the previous year's Supremi apostolatus officio that special rosary devotions be conducted throughout the month of October, particularly in light of the recent outbreak of cholera spreading from the ports. He further modified the previous year's decree, "As We desire also to consult the interests of those who live in country districts, and are hindered, especially in the month of October, by their agricultural labours, We permit all We have above decreed, and also the holy Indulgences gainable in the month of October, to be postponed to the following months of November or December, according to the prudent decision of the Ordinaries."
