'To the pandemic of the virus we want to respond with the universality of prayer, of compassion, of tenderness'

 —Pope Francis

Text of the video:

Let us all pray together for the sick, for the people who are suffering.
We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God.
Do not despise our pleas — we who are put to the test — and deliver us from every danger. O glorious and blessed Virgin.
I thank all Christians, all the men and women of good will who pray at this moment, in unison, whichever religious tradition they belong to.

 —Pope Francis, March 2020
