Daily Update - Friday 27th March

Adoration and Urbi et Orbi blessing

Having prayed the Angelus on Sunday, Pope Francis also revealed that on Friday 27 March at 5pm UK time (6pm Rome), he will pray on the steps of St Peter’s basilica. Although the square will be empty, there will be a period of Adoration and readings from Scripture.

Plenary Indulgence

At the end of the service, the Holy Father will impart his Urbi et Orbi blessing and will offer a Plenary indulgence for the COVID-19 pandemic.

He asks that we join together to uphold the universality of prayer, compassion and tenderness.

Pope Francis encourages us to “remain united and make our closeness felt – especially with healthcare professionals and those who serve.”
