Veneration of the Crown of Thorns at Notre-Dame de Paris to take place via LIVE Stream on Good Friday, April 10, 2020.
At 11:30 am, Archbishop Michel Aupetit, archbishop of Paris, will venerate the holy crown of thorns in the heart of Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral, a few days before the 1st anniversary of the fire that ravaged the building in 2019. This was announced during a video press conference - please see video below.
DEAR LORD, I am grieved when I consider Thy sad condition when Thou wore the Crown of Thorns upon Thy hold Head. I desire to withdraw the thorns by offering to the Eternal Father the merits of Thy Wounds for the salvation of sinners. I wish to unite my actions to the merits of Thy Most Holy Crown, so that they may gain many merits, as Thou hast promised. Amen.
-----Prayer based on a revelation by Our Lord to Sr. Chambon
