We all have more opportunity that ever before for spending “Quiet-Time” with “the God and Father of our Lord, Jesus Christ.” In a previous post, I mentioned Fr. Richard Rohr, a Franciscan brother who is one of the teachers at The Center for Action and Contemplation (CAD). Fr. Rohr is a thoughtful Catholic who combines with deep roots in our faith with a broad and engaging presentation of it. Though I don’t always agree with what he says, I am always stimulated by it. For sometime I have been receiving a Daily Meditation from the CAC, and several of them have been especially helpful as I have been thinking about a personal and pastoral response to the Corona Virus Pandemic. You can find a listing of the CAC’s 2020 Meditations for the Month of March at this Link. I would encourage everyone to read Rohr’s Meditation for March 19, entitled “Love Alone Overcomes Fear.” Therein he writes:
All Events Canceled
Out of an abundance of caution, Fries Memorial has decided to suspend worship services and other large gatherings until further notice. The PEC has strongly encouraged this decision with the health and well-being of our members and the wider community in mind.
We all continue to watch and to pray for those around the world who are being impacted by the spread of COVID-19. We pray for those infected, the families of those who have lost their lives, those providing care and relief, and those making important decisionsNEW POST EVERYDAY. Check back often.
