Worldwide Recitation of the Our Father on Wednesday 25th March at 12 Noon, 23.03.20


Dear Friends,

You may already know that, at the end of the Angelus last Sunday in Rome, Pope Francis invited all Christians across the globe of whatever denomination to recite the Our Father all together at 12 Noon. I have emailed Largs Churches Together about this. I know it’s not 12 Noon everywhere in the world at the same time, but if we all do it at 12 Noon then, as the earth turns on its axis, waves of the Our Father will, as it were, reach up to heaven.

Here is the invitation of Pope Francis:

“Dear Brothers and Sisters,

In these trying days, while humanity trembles due to the threat of the pandemic, I would like to propose to all Christians that together we lift our voices towards Heaven. I invite all the Heads of the Churches and the leaders of every Christian community, together with all Christian of the various confessions, to invoke the Almighty, the omnipotent God, to recite at the same time the prayer that Jesus, our Lord, taught us. I, therefore, invite everyone to do this several times a day, but all together, to recite the Our Father this coming Wednesday, 25 March, at noon, all together. On that day  on which many  Christians recall the annunciation to the Virgin Mary of the Incarnation of the Word, may the Lord listen to the united prayer of all of His disciples who are preparing themselves to celebrate the victory of the Risen Christ.”
