In a campaign organized by the Ad Council and COVID Collaborative, Pope Francis joined six cardinals and archbishops from the US, South, and Central America to promote COVID vaccination.
“Thanks to God’s grace and to the work of many, we now have vaccines to protect us from Covid-19. They bring hope to end the pandemic, but only if they are available to all and if we collaborate with one another. Getting vaccines authorized by the respective authorities is an act of love. And helping the majority of people to do so is an act of love. Love for oneself, love four our families and friends, and love for all peoples. Love is also social and political. There is social love and political love, it is universal, always overflowing with small individual gestures capable of transforming and improving societies. Getting vaccinated is a simple yet profound way to care for one another, especially the most vulnerable. I pray to God that each one of us can do his or her own small gesture of love. No matter how small, love is always grand. Small gestures for a better future.”
