Reflection for March 27 2020

We must rediscover the concreteness of little things, small gestures of attention we can offer those close to us, our family, our friends. We must understand that in small things lies our treasure. They are familiar gestures of attention to the details of everyday life that make life meaningful and that create communion and communication among us.

Pope John Francis

This week's reflection

Reflection for March 20 2020

The very last thing we need right now is a mindset of mutual distancing... We actually need to be thinking in the exact opposite way. Every hand that we don't shake must become a phone call that we place. Every embrace that we avoid must become a verbal expression of warmth and concern. Every inch and every foot that we physically place between ourselves and another must become a thought as to how we might help that other, should the need arise. Let's stay safe. And let's draw one another closer in a way that we've never done before.
