Do you know that you can use the opportunity of washing your hands to pray also? It takes about 20 seconds to say the ‘Our Father’. Use the time for washing your hands productively by saying a prayer. Do not to be afraid; those who believe in Christ have no reason to worry about anything. Just like the Apostles, we don’t need to be afraid…all we need do is take our worries to Jesus and he would weather the storms in our lives. Keep the flame of their faith alive, drawing strength from the words of St. Paul that “all things work together unto good for those who love God (Rom. 8:28). Church shall not relent in her prayers for God’s intervention in the fight against coronavirus.
