Masses now celebrated again in Archdiocese of Mexico City following flu epidemic

.- The Archdiocese of Mexico City announced last week that Sunday Mass and normal parish activities will resume as efforts to contain the swine flu epidemic have begun yielding results.

“The sacrifices carried out by the Church in following the healthcare instructions given by civil authorities has yielded results, as shown by the decrease in infections and deaths in this city,” the archdiocese said.

However, according to the Archdiocese of Mexico City’s news service, Cardinal Norberto Rivero encouraged Mexicans not to let their guard down and to take the “necessary precautions in order to end this epidemic.”

Likewise, the cardinal “called on all the faithful to continue praying for the maternal intercession of the Virgin of Guadalupe that this disease end, not only in our country but throughout the world.”

Health care officials recommended that facemasks be worn during religious services and that afterwards “those in charge of cleaning churches disinfect pews and kneelers used by the faithful.”
