Pope Francis offered his daily Mass at Casa Santa Marta for the elderly, especially those who are isolated or in nursing homes.
They are afraid, afraid to die alone. They see this pandemic as something aggressive toward them. They are our roots, our history. They have given us the faith, tradition, a sense of belonging to a homeland.
The elderly have been the most hard-hit by the coronavirus pandemic, especially those with pre-existing conditions that were exacerbated by the virus.
