Pope Francis invites all Catholics and Christians Around the World to Come Together in Prayer on Friday, Mar. 27, 2020
The Holy See has issued an invitation for all Catholics and Christians around the world to participate in a special prayer with the Holy Father. Pope Francis will grant all participants the plenary indulgence before imparting the Urbi et Orbi blessing, a special apostolic blessing given by the Pope on certain solemn occasions. A plenary indulgence is a remission of the total temporal punishment that is still due to sin after absolution. The blessing will take place in St. Peter’s Square. Catholics and Christians around the world are invited to participate and view the live broadcast on Mondovision to be streamed on the Vatican News website, www.vaticannews.va.
