Let us not lose hope
Dear St. Vincent de Paul Family,
I pray that you are all doing well.
This has certainly been an unprecedented week in our nation and around the world. It seems that almost every few hours we are receiving updated information and guidance from the Archdiocese as well as local, national and world leaders and global health experts.
I know how easy it is for us to feel overwhelmed by it all, but let us not lose hope. The news we hear seems dire and no reprieve seems on the immediate horizon. But this is precisely why it is so important that we get and remain grounded in our faith.
With the cancellations of public masses, I continue to urge you to have your masses on TV and unite each other in our prayers. I will be offering my mass for your intentions. We continue to pray for those who are ill with this virus and for those who care for them, especially in countries that have been most affected. We also pray for health and frontline workers as they face their daily tasks. And we remember those communities, employees and businesses that have been affected as a result of the virus. While
lots of things have been canceled by the coronavirus, but love is not one of them.
Most of all, let us remember this- God is in control and we are in His hands.
You are in my prayers and thoughts.
