Pandemic Perspective, Good News, Protecting the Church, Wash & Be Clean 3.16.20

  • Father Matthew shares his perspective of travelling back to the US from Peru in the midst of covid-19 pandemic. Origins of the word quarantine and connection to lenten observances. Be not afraid.
  • Good news for the unborn. Technology can help us in spite of quarantine, but will never replace our need for human interaction.
  • In this month of St. Joseph, Father Matthew reminds us of his role as the protector of the Universal Church. Scripture reminds us, Joseph was a “just” man. Faith informs our reaction to challenges in life.
  • Today’s scripture reminds us of cleansing that leads us to become people of faith. When was the last time you went to confession? Sometimes solutions are very ordinary.
