During his Mass at Casa Santa Marta, Pope Francis recalled other pandemics like hunger and war.
May God put an end to this tragedy and this pandemic. May God have mercy on us, and may He put an end to the other terrible pandemics of hunger, war, and lack of education for children. This we ask as brothers and sisters, all together. May God bless us all, and may He have mercy on us.
He said that in the first four months of this year, 3.7 million people starved to death, a tragedy made even more difficult to combat because of the coronavirus.
