During his April 15 morning Mass at the Vatican, Pope Francis prayed for the elderly who are fearful of dying alone during the pandemic.
“They … are being trained to take the proper precautions to safeguard their health and the health of those with whom they come in contact,” according to a diocesan official.
Local churches and individuals must do more to help and to protect the elderly from loneliness and infection during the coronavirus pandemic.
Pope Francis urged Christians March 17 to remember the elderly who are suffering not only loneliness but also fear due to the spread of the coronavirus.
