Pope Francis dedicated Thursday’s homily to Italian authorities, asking people to support the government during the coronavirus pandemic.

Authorities often feel “alone” during times like these, but “it’s for everyone’s common good,” the Pope said.“Let’s pray for our leaders that have to take these decisions over these measures, let them feel supported by the people,” he said.

Italy was placed under total lockdown on Monday — meaning schools are closed, movement restricted, events canceled, public services suspended, and many public spaces are empty as people stay home.

Italy now has the most coronavirus cases outside of China.
