During the Angelus prayer Pope Francis said in these days of trial, while humanity is trembling with the threat of the pandemic, I would like to propose to all Christians to unite their voices to Heaven. I invite all the heads of the churches and the leaders of all the Christian communities, together with all the Christians of the various confessions, to invoke the Most High, Almighty God, while simultaneously reciting the prayer that Jesus Our Lord has taught us.
So I invite everyone to do it several times a day, but, all together, to recite the Our Father next Wednesday 25 March at noon, all together.
On the day when many Christians remember the announcement to the Virgin Mary of the Incarnation of the Word, may the Lord listen to the unanimous prayer of all his disciples who are preparing to celebrate the victory of the Risen Christ.
With this same intention, next Friday March 27, at 6 pm, I will preside over a moment of prayer on the churchyard of St. Peter's Basilica, with the square empty. As of now, I invite everyone to participate spiritually through the media. We will listen to the Word of God, raise our supplication, adore the Blessed Sacrament, with which at the end I will give the Urbi et Orbi Blessing, to which the possibility of receiving the plenary indulgence will be attached.
