Parish Activities Suspended
Catholic social teaching urges all Christians to work for the Common Good, the sum total of social conditions that maximize individual and group flourishing. It's clear that the coronavirus pandemic is a threat to both individual well-being and the Common Good. Health professionals tell us that it's essential to practice "social distancing" to inhibit its spread as best we can. Therefore it's our duty as Christians and as responsible citizens to do so.
I know that not receiving Eucharist during this two week period is a great spiritual hardship. But in this penitential season of Lent, perhaps temporarily suspending corporate worship for the sake of the Common Good is a Cross the Lord is asking us to bear. Perhaps it’s His way of drawing us to a deeper intimacy with Him by reminding us of just how much we yearn for His presence in the Eucharist.
Please know that I'm available to you during this fortnight, and that each of you remains in my prayers. Please continue to sustain one another in prayer and to find safe ways to be of service to others, inside and outside of the parish, who might be in distress.
Heavenly Father, whose precious Son came to give us life and well-being,
protect all those in peril from the coronavirus,
comfort and strengthen those afflicted by it,
inspire and enliven all those offering treatment,
and instill in us all courage, patience, and love.
Mary, Mother of God, pray for us.
All ye Saints in heaven, pray for us.
In the name of the + Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
