SECAM STATEMENT ON COVID-19 AND ITS CONSEQUENCES
“God, hear me as I make my plea; protect me from this frightening enemy” (Ps 64:1)
1. Prayer: We evoke this prayer in addition to the one we urged all to pray when we issued a brief statement on coronavirus on 6th March 2020. We do so to express, in these difficult times, our solidarity with the peoples of the African Continent and with all the sick infected with COVID-19, wherever they are. While we also pray for the peaceful repose of the souls of all who have lost their lives due to COVID-19, we consider it essential to share more thoughts on the pandemic.
