Cardinal Daniel N. DiNardo of Galveston-Houston prayed for and blessed health care workers, many exhausted from caring for patients throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, at a recent White Mass.
During this ongoing pandemic, the commitment of health care workers to treat COVID-19 patients even at risk to their own health and lives — and some have died — is an illustration of Judeo-Christian values still at work in the larger society, said Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone of San Francisco.
Urging Catholics to “never forget nor neglect to welcome” all of God’s people, Archbishop Wilton D. Gregory of Washington highlighted the inclusivity of Jesus during a special White Mass for people with disabilities.
White Mass in Washington, D.C. celebrates disabilities by praying for those with special needs, those who care for them and parents who receive a prenatal diagnosis of disability.
