Faith in the time of COVID-19

Catholic faithful wear masks as a preventive measure against the COVID-19 coronavirus as they fall in line to receive ash in observance of Ash Wednesday at Baclaran Church in Parañaque. The Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines issued guidelines for Ash Wednesday this year recommending the sprinkling of ash on the heads of the faithful instead of the traditional marking on the forehead, amid the COVID-19 outbreak that has killed more than 2,600 people.
