Vatican City

In response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Pope Francis gave an extraordinary Apostolic Blessing “urbi et orbi” (to the city of Rome and the World) at 5 p.m. Dublin  time, on March 27.

The formal blessing — usually given only immediately after a new Pope’s election and on Christmas and Easter — carries with it a plenary indulgence for the remission of all sins for all who followed by television, internet or radio, are sorry for their sins, and prayed sincerely during the Live broadcast. The Holy Father dispensed the faithful from having to go to confession and to receive the Eucharist as a requirement for the indulgence..
