Cardinals Invite Everyone To Pray With Them At St. Peter’s Tomorrow.



In the Vatican reporting about today’s Particular Congregation, mention is made of a proposal that was accepted to dedicate tomorrow evening’s session (presumably starting at the regular time of of 5 p.m. Rome time) to prayer.

DomeThere was also a proposal, endorsed by the Particular Congregation, to dedicate tomorrow afternoon to prayer in St. Peter’s Basilica. The Cardinal Dean, Angelo Sodano, will lead the prayers. This initiative will also serve as an invitation to the entire Church to pray at this important moment. The ceremony is open to the public so any faithful who so desire may attend.

I’m not seeing much coverage of it, but it looks like a good initiative to join. Wherever we happen to be at 5 p.m. Rome time tomorrow, we can join in spirit. See you there!

Update – h/t Edward Pentin, there’s booklet that you can use to follow along with here. And I think you can watch here.
