Yes, there is a better word, 'fear'.

I suggest this is a time to show a little kindness and compassion.

Here (in Rome at least), the Pope is a symbol of something solid in

me that I'm sensing is not only sadness for him but a fear about the
uncertainties and changes in their own lives with the Pope's
