     About our present situation in the COVID-19 pandemic, Pope Francis wrote: We have realized that we are on the same boat, all of us fragile and disoriented, but at the same time important and needed, all of us called to row together, each of us in need of comforting the other.  Lord, you are calling to us, calling us to faith.  Which is not so much believing that you exist, but coming to you and trusting in you.  Let us invite Jesus into the boats of our lives.  Let us hand over our fears to him so that he can conquer them.  Like the disciples, we will experience that with Him on board there will be no shipwreck.  Because this is God's strength: turning to the good everything that happens to us, even the bad things.  He brings serenity into our storms, because with God life never dies.
