Dear Supporters and Friends of the CCRL,

We invite all of you to join us in prayer with the Holy Father tomorrow, Wednesday March 25, the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord, at noon Rome time, which is 7 am EDT. Pope Francis has asked that every Christian pray the Our Father together with him.

This Friday, March 27, at 6 pm Rome time, 1 pm EDT, the Holy Father will lead prayers and Adoration in an empty St. Peter’s Square and then bless Rome and the world, an extraordinary urbi et orbi blessing, normally reserved for Christmas and Easter. All who participate via digital media will receive a plenary indulgence for past sins.

You can follow the Holy Father live on the following web link: Vatican News

Let us all join the Holy Father in prayer.
