In this time of emergency for humanity, the Holy Father Francis invites Catholics from all over the world to join spiritually in prayer with him on Friday March 27th at 18.00. [12 noon, local time]
The ceremony will consist in readings from the Scriptures, prayers of supplication, and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament; and will conclude with Pope Francis giving the Urbi et orbi Blessing, with the possibility of gaining a plenary indulgence for all those who listen to it live through the various forms of communication.
All those who spiritually join this moment of prayer through the media will be granted the plenary indulgence according to the conditions provided for in the recent decree of the Apostolic Penitentiary.    Link to Pope Francis LiveStream
