Pope Francis offered his daily Mass on Saturday for families who must adjust to life with everyone at home, that they may stay peaceful and joyful during the coronavirus pandemic.
"We continue to pray for sick people in this pandemic," the pope said before the start of Mass March 14, adding that he would also like to say a special prayer for families.
"Families, who from one day to the next find themselves with children at home because the schools are closed for safety, and who must manage a difficult situation and manage it well, with peace and also with joy," he explained.
Francis also said he was thinking in a special way of families who have members with disabilities, noting that many day centers for people with disabilities are currently closed.
