How We Endured the Pandemic of 2020 Day 5

March 23

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Our first weekend not in church was odd. I hope you found a mass online that was helpful to you. They are numerous. I said mass at my house and kept you in prayer. Let us continue to pray for one another, especially those who struggle with loneliness, depression and anxiety during this time. Remember all those who are sick and those who care for them. We pray for the scientists, health professionals, public officials, and all who are serving the common good in this difficult and uncertain time.

Kathy Morgan, our Youth Minister, found the attached article and passed it on to me. It is a very helpful way to care for yourself during these difficult times. Please make time to read it. Try to take one day at a time and not focus on the future since it is unknown. This is the day the Lord has made. We trust in the Lord for he is good and his mercy endures forever.

Always, may God’s peace be yours.

Fr. Leo
