English bishop encourages public prayer on Friday afternoons
September 10, 2012
An English bishop has suggested that Catholics should pray in public every Friday afternoon, as a way of bearing witness to the importance of their faith.
Bishop Kieran Conry of Arundel and Brighton asked the faithful to stop at 3 pm on Friday and pray. “Whatever you are doing, as your responsibilities allow, stop, perhaps close your eyes, bow your head and prayerfully and silently meditate on the sacrifice that Jesus made on the cross out of love for you and everyone,” he encouraged them.
