In his remarks at the General Audience today, March 22, Our Holy Father remarked:
Saturday will be the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord, and our thoughts turn to 25 March last year, when, in union with all the bishops of the world, the Church and humanity, especially Russia and Ukraine, were consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Let us not tire of entrusting the cause of peace to the Queen of Peace. I would therefore like to invite every believer and community, especially prayer groups, to renew every 25 March the Act of Consecration to Our Lady, so that she, who is Mother, may preserve us all in unity and peace.
I invite the clergy and faithful of the Diocese of Trenton to remember Pope Francis’ special intention in their prayers as we celebrate Mass and prayer on the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord.
Most Reverend David M. O’Connell, CM
Bishop of Trenton
