Pope Invites Faithful to Experience God’s Mercy in ’24 Hours for the Lord’ Initiative

Holy Father Will Open the Penitential Liturgy

Next Friday, in St. Peter’s Basilica, Pope Francis will celebrate the penitential liturgy for the traditional ’24 Hours for the Lord’ initiative.

At the conclusion of his General Audience in the Vatican’s Paul VI Hall, the Pope recalled this event, promoted by the Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization, encouraging faithful to participate.

“I hope that our churches can remain open long to welcome those who wish to prepare for Easter, celebrating the sacrament of Reconciliation, and, in this way,  experience God’s mercy.”
