A powerful image of Pope Francis walking through a deserted Rome to pray at two shrines for the end of the coronavirus pandemic.

He walked to pray at San Marcello al Corso in front of the same cross that was carried through Rome in 1522 to end the “Great Plague.

He also walked to the Basilica of St. Mary Major, to offer a prayer for the intercession of the Virgin Mary in front of the Salus Populi Romani icon.
