Message from Pope Francis for the month of May

"I want to encourage everyone to rediscover the beauty of praying the Rosary at home in the month of May. Contemplating the face of Christ with the heart of Mary our Mother will make us even more united as a spiritual family and will help us overcome this time of trial."
 
Perhaps, we could revive the tradition of the May altar in the home.

Invest more in our nurses, urges Pope Francis

Nurses have historically played a central role in health care. Every day, in their contact with the sick, they experience the trauma caused by suffering in people's lives. They are men and women who have chosen to say "yes" to a very special vocation: that of being good Samaritans who are concerned for the life and suffering of others. They are guardians and preservers of life, who, even as they administer necessary treatments, offer courage, hope and trust.

Nurses, as well as midwives, deservedly have the right to be better and more fully valued and involved in processes concerning the health of individuals and communities. It has been shown that investing in them improves overall care and health.

Prayer amid pandemic

Almighty and eternal God,
our refuge in every danger,
to whom we turn in our distress;
in faith we pray
look with compassion on the afflicted,
grant eternal rest to the dead, comfort to mourners,
healing to the sick, peace to the dying,
strength to healthcare workers, wisdom to our leaders
and the courage to reach out to all in love,
so that together we may give glory to your holy name.
Through Christ, our Lord.
Amen.
