To combat the spread of the Covid-19 epidemic, the Vatican has taken drastic measures. “This is an unprecedented decision taken by the Vatican. To ensure that no celebration of Holy Week can be done with the public. From Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday, all the celebrations will take place in private and the churches will be closed “, explains the journalist Alban Mikoczy, duplex from Rome (Italy).
The churches will be closed during this period, which takes place around the second week of April. “If the Vatican authorities have made this decision, it is to collaborate with the will of the Italian authorities to ensure that there are as few people as possible in Rome, this is why the religious authorities have taken this unique decision in the history of Catholicism “, specifies the journalist. The Pope's messages are recorded and accessible on the internet.
