“The faith must express itself in charity and in solidarity, which is civil of charity.” Claudio Hummes
The coronavirus pandemic gives us the opportunity to live in more supportive way towards one another. It gives us golden opportunity to live in solidarity with one another even while at physical distance from each other.
In face this crisis let us more neighbourly have ever been before. In winter during the rare times it snows, neighbours who hardly talk to one another in normal times, end up having conversation on doorstep and to items of shopping their stranded neighbour.
May we keep in communication with on coronavirus crisis. Let us speak to one another on phone, and ready ourselves of service.
Crises can often bring the best out. I often think that times of crisis are necessary to teach us solidarity with one another, and to love and care for one another.
Jesus is great example of solidarity, love and services. We learn by his example. “Love one another as have loved you. No one has greater love to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” (John 15:12-13).
Jesus took on suffering, bore it, and moved through resurrection and new life.
We too can follow is path, actively joining God’s loving solidarity, with it suffering for world. Jesus does not ask us necessarily to worship him. He asks more that follow him, by trusting and embracing this scary journey together.
Every Blessing in Christ
