Solidarity in Times of Crisis

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity! Psalm 133

The world is living a difficult time, perhaps very few could have imagined that we had to be confined for a long period of time, and that everything we were used to, had to change. Now, we face many challenges ahead: How to teach and work from home? How to keep healthy now that we can’t go out? How to maintain our well-being and mental health? How to get closer to those we live with? How to rethink our routines, habits and ways of living? How to take some time to pause, stop and debrief what’s happening? What is really important and relevant at the moment?

The fact we need to stay at home to protect others is an invitation to think as a community and not as individuals. More than before, we need from one another, we need to trust that everyone is taking good care of themselves and then, we all together will survive this pandemia. As one very touching commercial said “we are playing one of the most important matches of our lives, and we’ll win only if we play it as a teamâ€, and playing as a team, implies, being responsible for those we care, for those who depend upon us and for those who need our help.

Among all this misfortunate times, there are things we can cherish and be thankful for:

  1. We have a home where our basic needs are taken care of.

  2. We have a family to rely on when we are feeling sad or lonely.

  3. We have food that we can share with family members which provides us with the necessary support to fuel our  immune system. 

  4. We have a lot of people who help in times of need.

  5. We still have our jobs and responsibilities to help other in need.

  6. We are part of a global community  which is reorganizing itself so in the future we can enjoy the sunshine and the moonlight with those we deeply love.

Let’s pray together for a bright future for all of us. In this sense we kindly invite you to share with us the Palm Sunday Celebration of the Catholic Community, with a mass that will be held on Sunday, April 5th  at 10:00 a.m. Please join us in the following link: https://zoom.us/j/498576856
