COVID-19 and Lent

/ 24 March 2020

Lent has always been a time of reflection for me, catalyzed in a variety of ways. This year, in the middle of a pandemic, I’ve been particularly moved by the daily email meditations that come from the Center for Action and Contemplation (Richard Rohr and community).

I find music to be a crucial source of comfort these days, and I keep returning to this song (and its video images) as I try to breathe into oneness this Lent. My prayer is that this terrible global crisis will bring us more deeply into communion, and make us more thoroughly aware of our interdependence.
