Evening Prayer in St. Peter’s Basilica
At 7:30 on the evening of April 6, Bishop Echevarría presided at the “Evening Prayer” held everyday during the Jubilee in the atrium of St. Peter’s Basilica. On the Thursdays in Lent, students from the various universities in Rome took part in this liturgical act, with a radio hookup to another European university.
On this occasion some two thousand students from the University Campus Biomedico of Rome took part, in conjunction with a radio hookup to the International University of Catalonia in Barcelona. At the conclusion of the ceremony, the participants received the Pope’s blessing by radio.
