Seventh Anniversary of Pope Francis' Election

Pope Francis

Today is the seventh anniversary of the election of Pope Francis. As we face uncertain times, we celebrate this pope who continues to accompany us through these crises. As this Vatican News article states, Pope Francis is urging priests to do the same for their parishioners: At the beginning of the Mass at Santa Marta on Tuesday 10 March, he prayed for priests, especially: that during this time they may have the strength to accompany, comfort and be close to those who suffer. While taking all possible precautions, the Pope said priests should have "the courage to go out and visit the sick, bringing the strength of the Word of God and the Eucharist", as they accompany healthcare workers, volunteers, and all those assisting people afflicted with the coronavirus.
