We are living through an unprecedented spring. The coronavirus is changing our lives right now and probably will be a life changing event for many of us, if not, for all of us. We will have viewed umpteen programs, updates, and newscasts advising us how to live through this time. While walking outside with friends I heard a woman exclaim: “Oh, look, the masketeers.” Yes, we have cloned a word and we shall ever remember our masks.
“After all, it really is all of humanity that is under threat during a pandemic.” ~ Margaret Chan
“A united humanity will be able to confront the many troubling problems of the present time: from the menace of terrorism to the humiliating poverty in which millions of human beings live, from the proliferation of weapons to the pandemics and the environmental destruction which threatens the future of our planet.” ~ Pope Benedict XVI
