Pope Francis visits the needy and homeless at Vatican on Good Friday


On Good Friday, Pope Francis visited the homeless and needy persons at Vatican as they received their COVID-19 vaccination. At the atrium of Paul VI Audience Hall, volunteers and physicians congregated to administer the vaccine. The pope wore a mask as he greeted worshippers who marked the holy day. This week, officials stated that many persons got the vaccine at the Vatican.

It is a ritual for worshippers to travel across borders to mark Good Friday and other days in the holy week. However, this year, the turnout was different due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Last year was worse as the pandemic was at its peak.

The Passover is the event that marks the freedom of enslaved Jewish people in Egypt. It will begin on Saturday at sundown and it will end on Sunday with the Easter celebration.

According to USA Today, the spokesman and senior adviser for Lakewood Church in Houston affirmed that a lot of persons are eager to return to their normal lives. Likewise, he stated that there is a vibe around people who worship together and that feeling is greatly missed.

In order to curb the spread of the virus, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advised against congregating in large numbers as well as travelling.
