Pray the “Our Father” on the Annunciation

March 24, 2020

MARCH 24, 2020: On Wednesday, 25 March, the Feast of the Annunciation, Pope Francis has invited Christians to unite in prayer at noon (Rome time) to pray the Our Father together — so that as the entire world is suffering from the pandemic, so the Lord might hear all of Christendom united in prayer. Rome, Metropolitan City of Rome, Italy is 6 hours ahead of Chicago, Illinois — let us rise early at 6 a.m. CDT.

“I invite all 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 that day on which many Christians recall the Annunciation to the Virgin Mary of the Incarnation of the Word”, Pope Francis prayed, “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.”
