STRONG IN THE FACE OF TRIBULATION

Strong in tribulation. The communion of the Church support in the time of trial is a text, edited by the Dicastery for Communication of the Holy See, downloadable for free from the website of the Vatican Publishing House www.libreriaeditricevaticana.va. It collects prayers and rites of different ecclesial traditions with which we ask for liberation from evil. There is also a section dedicated to all those who cannot physically participate in the sacraments with: the provisions of the Apostolic Penitentiary with which "the gift of special Indulgences is granted to the faithful affected by Covid-19 disease, as well as to health workers, family members and all those who in any capacity, even with prayer, take care of them "; indications on spiritual communion; the Decree of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, on how to live the Easter Triduum in this time of Covid-19; Angelus  and the reflections pronounced by Pope Francis in this particular historical moment in which our planet is hit by the coronavirus epidemic (Covid-19). The collected texts start from 9 March 2020, will be constantly updated and available for free on the Vatican News website.
