Daily Reflection: Wednesday, April 1

April 1--April Fool’s Day! Don’t we wish that someone was playing a trick or a joke on us?
But, unfortunately, that is not the case!

Our reality is our reality and it will be our reality for a good time to come.

New government directives inform us that our “social distancing” and our “non-gathering” will continue for at least the next 30 days until the end of April!

And then, only God knows …

As we begin this month, let us pray in a special way for patience, seeking God’s help to find creative and positive ways to fill our time, and use our energy.

Some of you may have already seen this, but I want to share with you the prayer and message from the Church’s Pastor, Pope Francis … his message is powerful and the pictures are stark … him alone in the great expanse in front of St. Peter’s praying for each one of us.

It is also a reminder that we need to pray for him and for one another.

Please spend some time with his message today:

May we keep walking in faith and in trust, step after step!

--Fr. Mike
