Pope urges Christians to unite in prayer on 25 March

Rome / Pope Francis has summoned all Christians to unite in prayer as a response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the pontiff said at the Angelus prayer on Sunday.

The pope urged the faithful to come together praying Our Father on 25 March at noon “with a pandemic of prayer, of compassion, of tenderness.”

The respiratory disease has left over 4,800 dead in Italy.

“Let us remain united. Let us make our closeness felt toward those persons who are the most lonely and tried,” the pontiff added.

“In these trying days, while humanity trembles due to the threat of the pandemic, I would like to propose to all Christians that together we lift our voices towards Heaven.”

For this purpose, the pope invited “the Heads of the Churches and the leaders of every Christian community, together with all Christians of the various confessions, to invoke the Almighty, the omnipotent God, to recite at the same time the prayer that Jesus, our Lord, taught us” the Our Father on Wednesday 25 March, the feast of the Annunciation.

“On that day on which many Christians recall the annunciation to the Virgin Mary of the Incarnation of the Word, may the Lord listen to the united prayer of all of His disciples who are preparing themselves to celebrate the victory of the Risen Christ.” Pope Francis continued.

Two days later, on Friday, 27 March the pope will preside over a moment of prayer in St. Peter’s Square at 6:00 pm (17:00 GMT).

“I invite everyone to participate spiritually through the means of communication,” he said.

Pope Francis will offer readings from the Scriptures, prayers of supplication, and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and will conclude with giving the Urbi et Orbi Blessing.

Pope Francis offered his homily and prayed the Angelus from the Vatican Library Room which was broadcast live.

He finished by looking out onto a deserted St. Peter’s Square. The Vatican has banned the entry of people until 3 April. (March 22, 2020, EFE/PracticaEspañol)
