Pope Francis has prayed for families around the world who are quarantined in their homes in the midst of the pandemic.
During Mass on May 5, the pontiff noted that during the lockdown families are trying to do many things they have never done before.
He then warned against domestic violence, urging the faithful to pray for families, “that they might persevere in peace with creativity and patience during this quarantine.”
Media reports in recent weeks noted a rise in domestic abuse during the pandemic.
Radio Veritas Asia (RVA), a media platform of the Catholic Church, aims to share Christ. RVA started in 1969 as a continental Catholic radio station to serve Asian countries in their respective local language, thus earning the tag “the Voice of Asian Christianity.” Responding to the emerging context, RVA embraced media platforms to connect with the global Asian audience via its 21 language websites and various social media platforms.
