Pope Francis reminds that May 14 is a day of prayer and fasting for end of pandemic

Prior to Mass at Casa Santa Marta, Pope Francis reiterated the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity's invitation to all religions to make this May 14 a day of prayer and fasting to ask God for an end to the pandemic.

We are all brothers and sisters. St Francis of Assisi used to say, “All brothers and sisters.” Thus, men and women of every religious confession, we unite ourselves today in prayer and penance to ask for the grace of healing from this pandemic.

The Higher Committee of Human Fraternity was formed after Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar signed the Document of Human Fraternity in Abu Dhabi in February 2019. The joint statement calls people of goodwill to combine their efforts to promote universal peace.
