Pope invites all Christians to pray at noon
Through the direction of Pope Francis, Bishop Walker Nickless invites all Christians to pray at noon today.
Today marks the day when many Christians commemorate the annunciation of the angel Gabriel to Mary with the announcement that she would be the mother of the Son of God.
“I invite all the 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 next Wednesday, March 25, at midday — all together,” Pope Francis declared.
Nickless said he is hopeful all Christians will join in prayer at noon, as well as in continuous prayer during this extremely difficult time.
