POPE FRANCIS: held the special Urbi et Orbi on Friday 27 March from the steps of St. Peter’s Basilica.  Usually a colourful event reserved only for Christmas Day and Easter Sunday, This extraordinary blessing was held in keeping with the gravity of the current global situation, as more than half of the world’s population is confined to their homes to prevent the spread of Covid19.  In his meditation, the Pope reflects on Jesus’ words to His disciples: “Why are you afraid? Have you no faith?”  (Links to the summary and full text below.)
