Friday 27 March Pope Francis gave an extraordinary blessing

In response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Pope Francis gave his Urbi et Orbi blessing to the city of Rome and to the world.

The formal blessing is usually given only immediately after a new pope is elected and on Christmas and Easter.

This took place at 6pm (Rome time). You can watch this 60 min Youtube recording from Saturday at 6am Here
