World Day of Prayer to end the COVID-19 Pandemic
Pope Francis has called for all believers to unite in an interreligious day of prayer, fasting and works of charity to help end the pandemic. At the weekly General Audience on 3 May 2020, Pope Francis appealed for the Day of Prayer on 14 May 2020 launched by the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity.
Pope Francis said: “Prayer is a means to communicate with and listen to God. In this spirit, I have welcomed the invitation of the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity to dedicate tomorrow, 14 May, to prayer, fasting, and works of charity. I invite and encourage everyone to join in this event. May we unite as brothers and sisters in asking the Lord to save humanity from the pandemic, to enlighten scientists, and to heal the sick. May the Lord bless each one of you, and always protect you from every evil.”
