A group of nuns in Bangladesh has been praying non-stop round the clock for a stop to the spread of the new coronavirus disease.
"We are praying with tears in our hands. We see how many countries ... are suffering from the coronavirus disease and people are dying," said Sister Mary Rose of the Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration congregation.
Founded in France in 1854 by Marie Claire Bouillevaux, the Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration are cloistered nuns dedicated to the Perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
"Our prayer is to God to protect the people from this terrible virus," said the nun who is superior of the Poor Clares community in Mymensingh.
Sister Mary Rose said that they have been praying also for doctors, nurses, and health workers who provide services to those afflicted by the disease.
"May they courageously serve patients and may the Risen Lord save this world," added the nun. - Father Nikhil Gomes
