Christ is in our midst!

Alice:

His Holiness asked us to pray again on Friday at 12 noon Eastern time, but I didn't receive the email until 1:30 p.m. The word we received earlier, however, was that we were to pray at 12 noon Eastern time on Annunciation Day. Probably doesn't make any difference if we are praying with the intent to be together--in eternity where all prayer goes it is all the same time anyway.

Maybe we should all just make it our practice to pray the Our Father at noon in our own time zones each day until this is over.

Or say the Orthodox Trisagion Prayers (which conclude with the Our Father) at the top of EVERY hour.

On March 25, the Annunciation Feast, I set my alarm to 7AM, woke up and prayed the Our Father with the Pope and all the faithful joining him.
