Pope Francis Thursday prayed for everyone who is fearful of the future because of the coronavirus outbreak, asking the Lord for help in bearing these worries.
"In these days of so much suffering, there is so much fear," he said March 26.
"The fear of the elderly, who are alone, in retirement homes, or in the hospital, or in their home and do not know what can happen," he said. "The fear of unemployed workers who are thinking about how to feed their children and see hunger coming."
There is also, he said, the fear felt by many social servants who are helping to keep society running, putting themselves at risk to catch the coronavirus.
