Oh whoops, for a second there I thought I was back at Catholic Answers Forums lol

Serious or just joking? If serious, haven't you seen the Pachamama Idol worship he committed?

God Bless You

How is the Pope calling for prayer a bad thing?  If you were to ask any random person on the street, "what do you think a pope spends a lot of time doing?" one of the top answers would surely be "praying."

Also, from Vatican News:  "The Committee suggests Thursday, 14 May, as a day 'for fasting, works of mercy, prayers, and supplications for the good of all humanity.'"  Which seems like a great idea.

Here the Holy Father again teaches by example - uniting with sisters and brothers in prayer for a cause greater than ourselves; a chance to view someone who practices a different faith not as "other" but as a fellow human being made in the Image of God who is facing the same worries as anyone else.  Likewise, Pope Francis has wisely steered the idea of this virus as some type of "divine punishment" instead toward a more edifying call of reflection and penance, a time for us to cast ourselves toward the gaze of the merciful Father.
