Several people have called me with concerns about attending mass on Sunday, either because they are not that well themselves, or have a weak immune system. If you are worried about getting infections at mass it is ok to stay at home and watch it on TV. Another alternative is to go to mass during the week when there are fewer people there and there is more space. The important thing is to try and give some time on Sunday to worship the Lord. Equally, if you are sick yourself, it is better not to go to mass on Sunday so that you don’t pass it on.
Meanwhile we trust in his providence. 366 times in the Bible are the words ‘Do not be afraid.’ The Lord does not want us to be living in fear. May the Lord keep us all healthy.
