“The current pandemic has highlighted our interdependence: we are all linked to each other, for better or for worse. Therefore, to come out of this crisis better than before, we have to do so together, all of us, in solidarity.”

Pope Francis, General Audience, 2nd September 2020


Lord, I pray that I may see the grace in this pandemic.
When it ends, may I not return to business as usual,
but rather may I have grown more eager
to adorn my life with good works,
in preparation for the eternal banquet of heaven.

Fr Jack Zupez SJ
