The Most Holy Pope Francis has asked us to come together in prayer.
He says, “I invite the heads of the churches and the leaders of all the Christian communities, together with all Christians of the various confessions, to invoke the Almighty, the All Powerful God, by reciting contemporaneously the prayer that Our Lord Jesus has taught us."
“I therefore invite everyone to recite the Our Father at midday (12PM) on Wed., March 25, on the day when many Christians recall the annunciation to the Virgin Mary of the Incarnation of the Word, so that the Lord may listen to the unanimous prayer of all his disciples that are preparing to celebrate the victory of the Risen Christ,” Francis said.
He also announced that he will preside over “a moment of prayer” from the steps of the basilica Saint Peter’s at 6PM Rome time, Friday, March 27. He said the square would be empty, but he invited people across the world “to participate spiritually” in this prayer which, he explained, would include readings from the Scripture and adoration of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.
