I was amazed at how emotional I became because I couldn’t attend Mass and receive Communion on Sunday. Then again when I couldn’t keep my appointment with God at my Tuesday Holy Hour. On top of that Mary, my friend from Church, and I decided that it would be best for me if we didn’t meet Tuesday mornings till this is all over.
I have a deep-seated need to spend time in prayer and in the Presence of God. I need to hear Mass and be together with people doing the same. St. Francis has become a home of great love for me and a big part of this is because of you. This quarantine has stopped all contact with all of this.
God, my Papa and I spend time each morning together in prayer, journaling and just listening and responding. So I am not alone, but the community I have with others is stopped.
So as I was watching our Fathers’ post, I realized that they too must be going through the same emotions and needs. I ache for them and their needs. They are such good shepherds that they must also miss the contact. (As I type this I realize I wouldn’t make a good hermit!).
I hope you are finding contact in the phone and email and texting. All the things we usually tend to find intrusive have become a lifeline.
I pray for you everyday. Know that I’m here. I’m always here, I can’t leave! LOL
Take care and stay healthy,
