I am happy to announce this week that I am officially out of my quarantine period! I was blessed to have a very mild case of Covid, with no discernable symptoms other than a loss of my sense of smell, which has already started to come back. No one else in my family has developed any symptoms. Thank you again for all of your prayers. I look forward to returning to campus this Sunday, Nov. 1, to celebrate the Solemnity of All Saints with you. We will be resuming our usual schedule this week, including our Wednesday evening time of Adoration and prayer (see schedule below).
The Communion of the Saints
This weekend we celebrate three very special days in the Church - Halloween (Oct 31), All Saints Day (Nov 1), and All Souls Day (Nov 2). Collectively, these days have traditionally been known as Hallowtide, "hallow" being an archaic English word for "saint." In my video reflection this week, I discuss the history and significance of these three days and what our observance of them teaches us about the Communion of the Saints that we profess in our Creed.
