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.[1] 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.
