Vatican City, May 11, 2020 / 03:30 am America/Denver (CNA).
Pope Francis began his morning Mass on Monday by praying for the unemployed after millions of people lost their jobs amid coronavirus restrictions.
“In these days many people have lost their jobs … We pray for these brothers and sisters of ours who are suffering because of lack of work,” Pope Francis said on May 11.
While coronavirus measures are slowly being lifted in different parts of the world, the pope noted that many people have not been re-employed, and some are working under the table.
In his homily, Pope Francis said that God gave the gift of the Holy Spirit for guidance, to help one to know what is the right path.
“If we ask the Holy Spirit for light, He will help us to discern to make the real decisions, the small everyday ones and the biggest ones,” he said.
