Archbishop Charles Scicluna has appealed to the public to remain home during the coronavirus outbreak and abide by the instructions given by the health authorities. During Sunday’s mass which was live streamed on, Archbishop Scicluna celebrated mass from St Francis’ Church in Ħamrun.

Citing Sunday’s Gospel reading which was on the raising of Lazarus, Archbishop Scicluna noted that while at the time He had told Lazarus to wake up and come out, in such times, Jesus is telling us to remain safe inside our homes.

Archbishop Scicluna explained that throughout the years Jesus helps us to grow even when we do not see in Him in others.

During his homily, Archbishop Scicluna also spoke about the situation in Italy and Spain, with the former being the hardest hit country outside of China. He explained that many ask where is God in all of this.

Archbishop Scicluna reminded the faithful that Jesus wept for those were suffering. Despite being aware of his power over death, Jesus wept after speaking with Lazarus’s grieving sisters, Martha and Mary, and seeing all the mourners.
