We’re not only a gathered people, we’re also a sent people.  Jesus says, “I send you into the world.  Just as the Father sent me into the world, I’m sending you.” We need to be sent out from the church building itself – and from the church community itself – to have a wider rippling effect in the world. 

– Br. David Vryhof, SSJE

    Wow! How timely! Sharing this today:

    “Many of us might be struggling with feelings of isolation or, on the other hand, a challenging proximity to those with whom we dwell. It posed the question:
    “How has the Coronavirus outbreak awakened you to the interdependence of humankind? Pray your gratitude for the people to whom you are connected. Pray for God’s company for those who are alone, are lost, are imprisoned, who otherwise feel forgotten.”

    Virus victims are dying in NYC every 17 minutes. Struggling for ways to cope with the horrific reality, I have been reading Psalm 91. Sending it to others who are frightened.

    I wholeheartedly agree, so very timely. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this whole series. The Brothers’ thoughts seem simple on first hearing but as time goes by, they linger and seep into your subconscious.
    I ached to see people exchanging handshakes and embraces. I sincerely hope we will soon be able to return to human contact.
