Holy Father Calls on World to Pray Together on March 25

As we are all united in the pandemic, may we all be united in prayer, Pope Francis urges.

Pope Francis invites all Christians around the world to unite on March 25 at noon (7:00 a.m. in St. Vincent and the Grenadines) to pray the Our Father’s Prayer together — so that as the entire world is suffering from the pandemic, so the Lord might hear all of Christendom united in prayer.

On March 25, Catholics and many Christians are celebrating the Annunciation, the day Gabriel visited Our Lady inviting her to bear his Son.

He also said that on Friday, March 27, he will spend time in prayer in St. Peter’s, starting at 6:00 p.m. (1:00 p.m. in St. Vincent and Grenadines). He invited the faithful to tune in to the ceremony (EWTN and Trinity TV). This will include the Liturgy of the Word, and benediction with the Blessed Sacrament. He will give an “urbi et orbi” apostolic blessing — “to the City of Rome and the world” — with the possibility of attaining a plenary indulgence.
