Pope Francis calls for interfaith prayer to overcome pandemic

Hyderabad:  The head of the Catholic Church Pope Francis called for all religions to participate in a day of prayer, fasting and works of charity to help overcome the coronavrirus pandemic on Thursday (May 14).

He wrote, “I have accepted the proposal of the Higher Committee for Human Fraternity that on 14th of May, believers of all religions should unite spiritually for a day of prayer, fasting, and works of charity, to implore God to help humanity overcome the corona virus pandemic.“

This comes at a time when there have been certain relaxations of the lockdown in places like United States and India. With the corona virus not showing many signs of slowing down, interfaith acts of worship and charity are means for many to help stem the tide of this pandemic.
