To plead to the Lord for a speedy end to the current worldwide pandemic, Pope Francis invites all to join with him in prayer on Friday, March 27, 7:00 a.m. Hawaii Time (6:00 p.m. Rome time).
The Holy Father will conduct a prayer service for all the world at St. Peter’s Basilica, which will include Scripture readings, prayers, and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. He will conclude with the Urbi et Orbi Blessing (to the city of Rome and to the world), which is normally only given at Easter and Christmas. A special indulgence is connected to this blessing. You can join in this prayer service via EWTN Catholic television network or other media portals.
