The coronavirus is showing us that each person's true good is common good, not only individual, and, vice versa, the common good is a true good for the person. If a person only seeks his or her own good, that person is egoistical. Instead, the person is kinder, nobler, when his or her own good is open to everyone, when it is shared. A healthy society is one that takes care of everyone's health, of all.
This book collects the words of Pope Francis on the pandemic of coronavirus pronounced during the General Audiences. It covers a time span from August 5, 2020 to September 23, 2020. The book has been created with the aim of preserving and transmitting the intention expressed by the Pontiff at the conclusion of the General Audience of August 5, 2020: “It is my desire to reflect and work together, as followers of Jesus who heals, to build a better world, full of hope for future generations”.
