The website “launched” by COMECE today, which now counts 28 Sanctuaries from 17 European countries and the Vatican, is “the practical realisation of a desire to show the solidarity, communion and unity of the Church, supporting Europeans to grow in a spirit of solidarity and to better face the challenges posed by the current pandemic”.

Indeed, COMECE is open to possibly cooperating with partners from every country “in order to improve the project over time, adding new live streaming services and languages” (the reference language is currently English, while the liturgical celebrations are obviously streamed in their original language).

Alain Paul Lebeaupin, Apostolic Nuncio to the European Union, at a moment when multiple European governments took strict precautionary measures to contain the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.
