Pope Grants Extraordinary Blessing

There are two annual occasions that the Pope gives the Urbi et Orbi blessing, in addition to the day he is elected Pope. This extraordinary blessing signifies the seriousness with which the Holy Father sees this public health crisis and the need for the power of Christ and the Cross to help us overcome the Coronavirus.3 27 urbi orbi english


The blessing comes with the granting of a Plenary Indulgence to all who participate in the blessing by any means -- in person, by television, by internet, by radio. In fact, the Holy Father will be giving this blessing in St. Peter's Square which will be empty as the entire country of Italy is also confined to their homes.plenary indulgance


The simple invitation (at Right) indicates the conditions and requirements for receiving the Indulgence, which is a help in our journey and our return to the Father. 


You will notice that participating in a devotion such as Stations of the Cross is one of the suggested devotions and we invite you to join us this evening at 7:30 PST as well as we stream the Stations by our Camino Pilgrims.

You can join us tonight via St. Monica Livestream or on


The blessing is explained in more detail in this Angelus Article:  Pope announces extraordinary 'urbi et orbi' blessing March 27 


The Archdiocese will broadcast the prayer and blessing on their website at 10:00 a.m PST: lacatholics.org
