CNA Staff, Nov 16, 2020 / 06:38 pm (CNA).- An emphasis on the need for healing, in both the Church and broader society, was prominent throughout the first day of the fall general assembly for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).

In his address Monday, Archbishop Jose Gomez of Los Angeles, president of the conference, called for a “heroic Christianity” that forms missionary disciples.

The COVID-19 pandemic has shaken people’s faith in God, Gomez said. More than just a public health emergency, the pandemic has raised “fundamental questions about divine Providence and the goodness of God,” and it is the Church’s duty to share the Gospel message as a response to the fear and uncertainty that are pervasive in society.
