CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Pierbattista Pizzabella, the Latin-rite Patriarch of Jerusalem, said that “it is not the virtual Masses that will save us,” during his homily for the feast of the Annunciation. He said that a “personal encounter” with Jesus Christ is essential to salvation. Reflecting on the costs of the Covid epidemic, he said: “Fear has made us think that the world is a hostile and dangerous place.”
