This Friday, at 12 Noon local time, everyone is invited to participate spiritually via livestream (at vaticannews.va) in a special moment of prayer presided over by our Holy Father Pope Francis.
 
The Pope will be on the sagrato (front steps) of St. Peter’s Basilica. There will be readings from Sacred Scripture, prayers of supplication, and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
 
At the conclusion, the Holy Father will give a special urbi et orbi (to the city of Rome and to the world) blessing. Those who participate livestream can gain the plenary indulgence attached to the Pope’s blessing.

To gain the plenary indulgence, in addition to participating in the prayer service via livestream, it is required – as soon as possible – to go to Confession, receive Holy Communion, and pray (Our Father and Hail Mary) for the Holy Father’s intentions.
