In an interview this week, Pope Francis called for patience and solidarity while criticizing those who complain about restrictive measures during the coronavirus pandemic, the Newsmax website reports today (November 20, 2020).
He praised what he called urban heroes "who take responsibility toward others and look
for a concrete solution so no one is left behind."
"We need change. The pandemic brought our organizational and developmental models into a crisis; it exposed many injustices, the troubling silence and social and health failures, subjecting a great number of our brothers to the processes of social exclusion and degradation," the pope said.
