As we walk through these days of this Pandemic and “Sheltering in Place”, I ask: “How are you “using” these days?”
Hopefully, we are not wasting these days in negative thinking and angry attitudes about the world, about our lives, and about the controversial “politics” that now surround the present moment.
If we do so, we are not honoring all who have, and are, suffering with the virus, and, most importantly, respecting all who have died because of this illness.
For those of us not touched by the illness, at this time, we need to make sure that we take this time to become a people, who have a more generous “take” at life and the world about us…to be a people more caring, more compassionate, more loving, and a people more deeply connected to the fact that we are one people in this Global Village.
For us, as Christians, we are called to be a people who believe that there is one God and we are all sisters and brothers of this one God…
I want to share with you about how I am spending my days; how am I trying to respect those who are suffering with this illness and honoring those who have died because of it.
I am working on becoming more sensitive, more compassionate, and more committed to working for a sense of social justice, working to make sure that we do not return to a world we knew before the Coronavirus, but creating a new world, reflecting Gospel values, after the Coronavirus...
I pray that you will accompany me on this journey!
