In response to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, Pope Francis has said he will give an extraordinary blessing “urbi et orbi” (to the city and the world) at 6 pm Rome time Friday 27 March.
This formal blessing is usually given only immediately after a new pope’s election and at Christmas and Easter. It carries with it the possibility of receiving a plenary indulgence for all who follow by television, internet or radio. More information will be be posted on the diocesan website http://www.cathol.lu
