At the conclusion of his general audience yesterday morning, our Holy Father Pope Francis announced another day of prayer and fasting for an end to the Israel-Hamas war, to be observed on Friday 27th October. The Holy Father went on to say, it will be “a day of penance to which I invite sisters and brothers of the various Christian denominations, those belonging to other religions, and all those who have at heart the cause of peace in the world, to join in as they see fit,”.
On that Friday, the Holy Father will preside over a vigil in St Peter’s Square at 6pm (5pm UK). He is desirous that faithful around the world join with him in prayer at that hour “in a spirit of penance to implore peace in our time, peace in this world”. Therefore, during that hour of 5pm – 6pm this Friday 27th October, we shall provide the opportunity for Adoration, praying for peace in unity with Pope Francis and the Church throughout the world, before the Exposed Blessed Sacrament. This shall be followed straight after by the celebration of Mass. It shall be a votive Mass for Peace.
