Posted on 09/07/2013 3:21:16 AM PDT by NYer
Here is the schedule for tomorrow's papal prayer vigil as of Friday evening.
5:45 pm (Rome time) About 50 priests will begin hearing confession in designated areas under the Bernini colonnades. Pope Francis has asked that the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) be made available throughout the evening because true peace springs from a heart that is reconciled with God and ones brothers and sisters.
6:30 pm A reader will read Pope Francis' September 1 Angelus address in which he called for the Day of Prayer and Fasting for peace.
7 pm Vigil begins
The Pope will greet the crowd, expected to be very large
The ancient hymn Veni Creator Spiritus is sung, followed by Marian prayer to Our Lady Queen of Peace
The Marian icon Salus Populi Romani (health or protection of the Roman people) is carried by four Swiss Guards from the obelisk in the center of the square while two girls carry bouquets of flowers.
Pope Francis leads the recitation of the Rosary, which will include readings from the poetry of St. Therese of the Child Jesus. The Pope has a special devotion to this young, Carmelite Saint beloved around the world. She is also known as "The Little Flower." Her baptismal name was Thérèse Martin.

"If you see an enemy, be reconciled with him. If you see a friend gaining honor, do not be jealous of him. And let not only the mouth fast, but also the eye and the ear and the feet and the hands and all members of your bodies."
St. John Chrysostom

Thank you for posting both links.
It’s not on the radio, though.
Listening/watching on my EWTN app right now. Good stuff!
