From Father Larry Tensi, Saint Columban Catholic Church, Archdiocese of Cincinnati.
“May we who are merely inconvenienced,
Remember those whose lives are at stake.
May we who have no risk factors,
Remember those who are most vulnerable.
May we who have the luxury of working from home,
Remember those who must choose between preserving their health or paying the rent.
May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools are closed,
Remember those who have no options.
May we who have to cancel our trips,
Remember those who have no place to go.
May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of economic market,
Remember those who have no margin at all.
May we who settle in for a quarantine at home,
Remember those who have no home.
During this time when cannot physically wrap our arms around each other,
Let us find ways to the loving embrace of God to our neighbors. Amen”
In compliance with President Trump’s call for continued social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Archdiocese of Atlanta has extended the suspension of public masses through April 19. Palm Sunday, the celebration of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem marking the start of Holy Week and the final days of His earthly ministry, is on April 5 this year. We may be forced to celebrate this holy day in isolation from our parish families, but the Missionaries of the Holy Spirit have an idea for a wonderful way to connect with other christians and publicly acknowledge Palm Sunday. Check out their recent Facebook post.
“We may be physically isolated, but we are not separated. We are united as the members of the body of Christ. We are the Church.” Let’s do this!
