Italy gives go-ahead for Roman Catholic Masses to resume May 18

Italy is set to lift its ban on religious services due to Coronavirus, much earlier than expected, following a meeting between the nation’s bishops and PM Giuseppe Conte.

However, the reopening will come with strict guidelines when it begins on May 18. The Roman Catholic church leaders called out the government for “arbitrarily excluding the possibility of celebrating Mass with the people,” The Daily Telegraph reported. 

According to the guidelines, the priests will need to wear gloves when distributing communion and should disinfect the church, along with the sacred objects they use during services.

The Telegraph reported, for the churchgoers, they will have to wear masks and maintain at least one-meter distance. 

Nearly, 4 million Italians have returned to work as of now. Also, small funerals were too allowed in Italy. 

The president of the Italian Bishops’ Conference, (Cei) Cardinal Gualtiero Bassetti, said the reopening is a prime example of government working hand in hand with the faithful, to bring peace and normalcy back to the country.

“The protocol is the fruit of a profound collaboration and synergy between the government, the Scientific and Technical Committee, and Cei, in which each did his part responsibly,” he said during a news conference, according to Religion News.

As of today, there have been almost 4 million confirmed cases in the world today, Italy with over 217,000 cases.
