Pope Francis’ video to pray for an end to the pandemic

In a special edition of “The Pope Video“, the Holy Father asks us to pray for the sick and the suffering.


Pope Francis sends a video message as Christians around the world prepare to celebrate Holy Week in an unusual manner due to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.

In response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Pope Francis gave an extraordinary blessing “urbi et orbi” (to the city and the world) early Friday evening March 27.
