Faith in the Time of Coronavirus
Panic and fear are not from God. Calm and hope are. And it is possible to respond to a crisis seriously
and deliberately while maintaining an inner sense
of calm and hope.
Do not Demonize
Many things have been cancelled because of the coronavirus. Love is not one of them.
Care for the Sick
Take the necessary precautions; don’t be reckless and don’t risk spreading the disease, but also don’t forget the fundamental Christian duty to help others.
There is also the longstanding tradition in our church of receiving a “spiritual communion,” when, if you cannot participate in the Mass in person, you unite yourself with God in prayer.
Trust God is with You
Jesus, then, understands all the fears and worries that you have. Jesus understands you, not only because He is divine and understands all things but because He is human and experienced all things. Go to him in prayer. And trust that He hears you and is with you.
