Best wishes to all of you. We hope that you have experienced God's love for you. Everything happens for a reason. Many EWTN hosts and local priests have suggested that the pandemic has led to a greater degree of communication between families and friends (in person or via technology) and an increased caring for the well-being of one another (even strangers). To paraphrase an episode of Father Spitzer’s Universe, don’t doubt God’s presence. Lots of people's bodies successfully heal and recover from the Coronavirus (Covid-19). God deserves credit. It's not simply their age or medical background or medical science alone that helps them recover. Things aren't as bad as they could have been without God's help and without us praying for help.
