On March 19, I sent out this letter-email to those St. Patrick’s parishioners for whom we have email addresses. I now post it here for broader access.
Please continue to pray for one another, for the sick, for those who are alone or afraid, for all healthcare workers, for our leaders.
In these days and in the days to come, we must push away from us a spirit of excessive worry and anxiety. In the quiet of our homes, outside in our yards, let us try to enjoy the beautiful spring days that have arrived, inviting the Lord to carry our worries and burdens, while we “cast all our worries on the Lord,” who cares for us (1 Pet 5:7), and fill our hours with wholesome things.
Our Lady, Queen of Heaven, pray for us.
St. Joseph, pray for us.
St. Patrick, pray for us.
