Pope Francis has expressed his gratitude to journalists, media workers, and those selling newspapers in the streets amid the pandemic for sharing “stories of hope.”

The pontiff noted in a letter released by the Vatican on April 27 that “for weeks already street newspapers have not been sold, and their vendors are unable to work.”

The pope expressed his “closeness” to journalists and those who earn a living through the media “and who in these times are hard at work with many innovative ideas.”
