On Good Friday (April 10) Archbishop Gomez will lead a National Prayer of the Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus for an end of the Coronavirus pandemic, on behalf of the bishops in the United States. The prayer will be live-streamed from the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels at 9 a.m. PST.

Let us remember Archbishop’s message of hope for this Holy Week, “This Holy Week will be different. Our churches may be closed, but Christ is not quarantined and his Gospel is not in chains. Our Lord’s heart remains open to every man and woman. Even though we cannot worship together, each of us can seek him in the tabernacle of our own hearts. Because he loves us, and because his love can never change, we should not be afraid, even in this time of trial and testing. In these mysteries that we remember this week, let us renew our faith in his love.”

Thank you.
