A Message from Our Holy Father for the Feast of the Annunciation: Mar. 25th

Pope Francis has asked for all Christians to unite together in prayer on Wednesday, March 25, 2020, at 12 noon. March 25 is a day on which many Christians commemorate the annunciation of the angel Gabriel to Mary with the beautiful announcement that she would be the mother of the Son of God. Pope Francis has stated,


“I invite all Heads of Churches and the leaders of all the Christian Communities, together with all the Christians of the various Confessions, to invoke the Most High, Almighty God, reciting contemporaneously the prayer that Jesus Our Lord taught us. I invite all, therefore, to do so several times a day, but all together, to recite the Our Father on Wednesday, March 25, at midday – all together.”

The prayer can ideally be said at noon, Rome time, or at noon local time, or at any other time of the day.
