Opinion | Pope Francis: A Crisis Reveals What Is in Our HeartsTo come out of this pandemic better than we went in, we must let ourselves be touched by others’ pain.
This is his conclusión:

To come out of this crisis better, we have to recover the knowledge that as a people we have a shared destination. The pandemic has reminded us that no one is saved alone. What ties us to one another is what we commonly call solidarity. Solidarity is more than acts of generosity, important as they are; it is the call to embrace the reality that we are bound by bonds of reciprocity. On this solid foundation we can build a better, different, human future.

Sincerely,

Ed
