“Dear Friend…” (May 2020)

Health care workers separated from family to limit exposure, quarantined travelers, face masks, and closed businesses are clear examples of how the pandemic requires sacrifice.

The world has surrendered personal contact, liberties, independence, financial security and ready access to resources to protect what’s most precious: life, especially the most vulnerable.

As we adapt, make do, and settle into a modified normality, God is longing to be our source of hope. There is no need for social distancing with God.

This Easter season, the world’s faithful are called to worship from home. “Charity begins at home” is much more than a nice catch-phrase, it’s love and faith in action, strengthening the domestic church.

Feel free to take off your mask, and rest as close as you wish in the arms of Jesus.
