The archbishop of Arequipa, Peru, thanked the doctors fighting the coronavirus pandemic, saying they offer hope to many.
"I am convinced that, along with the evils that this pandemic has brought us or made apparent, the good that a great many people constantly do has also come to light and is rarely given recognition," said Archbishop Javier del Río Alba.
Speaking to ACI Prensa, CNA's Spanish language news partner, the archbishop praised "the completely selfless dedication of the doctors and healthcare personnel, who put their own lives and that of their families at risk."
Their sacrifice, he said, "has been exemplary and deserves our complete gratitude and commitment to pray for them, not only now but always."
