Pope Francis sends video blessing for Hong Kong amid pandemic

Pope Francis has given his blessing to Hong Kong and China amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Bishop Stephen Chow of the Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong visited the Pope in Rome in early March following his episcopal ordination. In a press release on Tuesday, the church said that Bishop Chow had requested blessing directly from the Pope.

“I send you my blessing; I wish you all the best; I wish you… good citizens, that you are courageous in the face of the challenges of [the] time. Above all, I am thinking of many of you who have suffered from the Covid pandemic, I am close to you,” Pope Francis said.
