Pope leads world in the Our Father

Pope Francis led Catholics around the world in reciting the Lord’s Prayer on Wednesday at noon Rome time, united with leaders and the faithful of other Churches and Christian communities. On Friday at 1PM EDT, Pope Francis will offer an extraordinary benediction urbi et orbi — a solemn blessing to the city and the world — from the steps of an empty St Peter’s Square. Joining in will provide the faithful with a plenary indulgence. [1]
