“The tragedy is the wreckage of a train that has been careening down the track for years.”
“Great perils have this beauty, that they bring to light the fraternity of strangers.”
The pandemic is a global crisis that affects the life of the Church at the local, regional and universal levels. What is reportedly empty public streets and squares commiserate with empty pews in the churches and soulless spaces in St. Peter’s Square. But the spatial emptiness is a Kairos for many sojourners to be in touch with Immanuel who is God-with-us and allow the igniting of an outflow of inner strength from within that overflows into family life, life in the residence and in society and Mother Earth, making us realized in silence and solitude that we are all interconnected.
