The pope has called all Christian leaders to pray an Our Father for the end of the coronavirus, this Wednesday, March 25. For Catholics that is the feast of the Incarnation of the Son of God.
“Let us pray it many times, but everyone at the same time, at noon,” he said.
He also announced that on Friday, March 27, he will give an extraordinary Urbi et orbi blessing to Rome and the whole world. It will include the possibility of receiving a plenary indulgence. The blessing will be given at 6 p.m., Rome time.
He will give the blessing from outside St. Peter’s Basilica, where he usually holds his General Audiences. The square will be empty. There will also be Eucharistic adoration.
“We want to respond to the virus pandemic with a pandemic of prayer, compassion and tenderness,” he explained.
