The pandemic has slowed us down all over the world. I think good may come out of this time of great suffering, illness, death, and real poverty due to the entire situation we are facing. Why am I still so hopeful? I know that God loves us and is present with everyone of us, especially He is with those who call on Him in their suffering.
I want to share this prayer that I just received from America - a am always happy to share prayers from the Jesuits.
"Slow me down, God, slow me down,
so that I may see you more and more
in my faster and faster life.
Give me a listening heart,
and contemplative eyes,
so that I may see you more
in my active world."
