Pax Romana Journal 2020 Theme – “Beyond COVID19: A Comprehensive Perspective”
Covid-19 currently has spread to almost all the countries and territories in the world. It has forced humanity to re-examine every aspect of life on Mother Earth and raises new questions about the current neo- liberal socio-economic and political order, the relationship of Catholics to the church and the sacraments; the role of government and intergovernmental action in healthcare, and the relationship between peoples in forced of isolation.
Scientists have calculated that the COVID-19 epidemic may kill millions of people. But even before the virus there were so many other issues such as hunger, poverty, war, climate change, and inequality which caused millions of deaths all over the world. As we recognize the fragility and the cruelty of the current social order, it has given us another chance to look for alternatives to stop a future disaster and also to address the long due issues in the society.
