We have experienced five months now of self-isolation and physical distancing to combat the COVID pandemic. For many people, those measures have understandably been accompanied by anxiousness and insecurity and fear.
This experience is also an opportunity to be reminded that we need to hold in our hearts charity and compassion towards each other. Let us focus on a spirit of forgiveness, to give people the space to engage in their emotions. Let us respond in love, both in our words and in our actions.
I pray that God will bless you with His Spirit as you grow into the fullness of His love towards those who you meet each day.
