Pope to give extraordinary ‘urbi et orbi’ blessing Friday, March 27

Pope Urbi et Orbi Blessing

The blessing carries with it a plenary indulgence for all who follow by television, internet or radio and will be livestreamed on www.vaticannews.va.

VATICAN CITY — In response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Pope Francis said he will give an extraordinary blessing “urbi et orbi” (to the city and the world) at 6 p.m. Rome time (1 p.m. Virginia time) Friday, March 27.

The formal blessing — usually given only immediately after a new pope’s election and

on Christmas and Easter — carries with it a plenary indulgence for all who follow by television, internet or radio, are sorry for their sins, recite a few prescribed prayers and promise to go to confession and to receive the Eucharist as soon as possible.

After reciting the Angelus prayer March 22 from the library of the Apostolic Palace, Pope Francis announced his plans for the special blessing, which, he said, would be given in an “empty” St. Peter’s Square because all of Italy is on lockdown to prevent further spread of the virus.

With the public joining him only by television, internet or radio, “we will listen to the word of God, raise our prayer (and) adore the Blessed Sacrament,” he said. “At the end, I will give the benediction ‘urbi et orbi,’ to which will be connected the possibility of receiving a plenary indulgence.”

An indulgence is an ancient practice of prayer and penance for the remission of the temporal punishment a person is due for sins that have been forgiven. In Catholic teaching, a person can draw on the merits of Jesus and the saints to claim the indulgence for themselves or offer it on behalf of someone who has died.

In addition to announcing the special blessing, Pope Francis said that at a time “when humanity trembles” because of the COVID-19 pandemic, he was asking Christians of every denomination to join together at noon March 25 to recite the Lord’s Prayer. The Catholic Church and many others mark March 25 as the feast of the Annunciation.

“To the pandemic of the virus we want to respond with the universality of prayer, compassion and tenderness,” he said. “Let’s stay united. Let us make those who are alone and tested feel our closeness,” as well as doctors, nurses, other healthcare workers and volunteers.

Jesus Calms Water 

Jesus Calms Our Waters

In our lives, there are moments, when only Jesus can stop our torments. Those daily struggles that burden the soul, He comes to us and makes us whole.

Oh Jesus, calm the winds of fear we hide. Smooth the waves of greed and pride.Calm our storms of anger and hate.

Calm the storms that dim our sight, that block the path to your wonderful light. Calm the storms that lead us to sin. Give us courage, peace and love within.

Let us be a witness to those we meet, the rich, the poor, the stangers on the street. Let us serve them in this great land, for they too may have storms at hand.

Until our dying day, until we finally rest, help us rise each day and do our very best. Before the rains wash our strength away. Calm our storms Lord, each and every day.
