The pandemic that we are experiencing has changed our lives and changed our world. Countless people around the world and in our own communities are suffering either from the corona virus itself, or from the consequences of the virus. These consequences give rise to much suffering as people grieve the loss of loved ones, and isolation from supports that we take for granted, such as friends and family, work and recreation, and liturgy and parish functions. Usual routines have been put on hold, anxiety is on the rise, and people fear the face of illness and death as never before.
