Greetings to you from Rome. As the pandemic COVID 19 crisis is sweeping across the globe, the world is facing the greatest challenge ever after World War II. Daily life is very different as nations try to halt the pandemic. The global economy wavers as the world comes to a standstill. A few countries like Italy, Spain and the United States are overwhelmed with the rise of infected cases. Medical personnel on the frontlines are risking their lives and many are victims of the pandemic. This situation perhaps is calling us to ponder, to slowdown, to draw near to God and one another and to discern what is really important in life. Pope Francis has called for global participation “to respond to the coronavirus pandemic with the universality of prayer,”
On the other hand, there is a positive outcome due to decrease of transport, air travel, restrictions of movement and business activity. The air quality has improved, carbon footprint is reduced, social concern is rekindled, family being together, faith deepened, spirit of sharing and caring for one another is enlivened as people respond in many different ways.
This newsletter presents the stories from our people in mission who have benefited much from your generous contribution. We, at the IMDO, appreciate your continual support to the various projects of the congregation.
We are united with you in prayer for the healing of our world. May this Holy season of Easter be a time of hope and blessing for all humanity.
A blessed Easter to all !
