In the reading today from Acts 16, they ask Paul; “what must I do to be saved?” Paul responds that we must believe in the Lord Jesus. This verse is at the heart of many people coming up to us and asking if we are “saved “. Maya Angelou said; “I’m startled or taken aback when people walk up to me and tell they are a Christian. My first response is “already”.” For us as Catholics salvation is not an event or moment in time. For us it is a journey as travelers with Jesus. It is a process we live one day at a time.
As travelers with Jesus we need to be strong because the journey can be rough. What sustains us for the journey Is normally the Eucharist. Since we cannot receive his precious Body and Blood we need to strengthen our Piety, Study and Action to carry us through these times.
We need to see this quarantine as an opportunity to shore up on our lives what is lacking . Finally, Let us get in the habit of praising God in all circumstance We may face !!
