Caring for Our Soul in a Time of Crisis

Caring for Our Soul in a Time of Crisis

Our soul is the core of who we are and caring for it is absolutely essential. During this health crisis, the church faces the reality of being unable to care for people’s souls as they normally would. The crisis has forced all of us to rethink how we accomplish certain aspects of our religious lives and the church has had to get creative, adapt and try to reach people in their “online” lives. But, not being able to go to church isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It may just mean that we have more time to spend with our spiritual state of being. Considering that we have less distractions, making it easier to focus on our relationship with God and achieve a deeper sense of peace.

Caring for our soul doesn’t necessarily mean we must go to church either, it can be a combination of things like enjoying the little moments with the people we love, spending time reading the bible, reading a good book, spreading kindness with the people around us. Although the current situation doesn’t allow us to do a multitude of things, being isolated may be a great time to re-discover our faith. 

Psalm 25
Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my savior, and my hope is in you all day long. Do not remember the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; according to your love remember me, for you Lord, are good. Guard my soul and deliver me; do not let me be put to shame, for I take refuge in you.

Being deprived from attending Mass is tough for all of us; nonetheless, you can be sure that in the midst of uncertainty, anxiety and fear, God is with us. Even if we feel like we cannot trust anything or anyone, we can trust in God’s presence. He will grant us peace, love and strength so we can remain physically and spiritually healthy. 

While it’s important to remain vigilant to potential dangers from this virus, we must continue to trust in God remain calm and stay positive in a time of distress. Show compassion to those who are suffering, and pray for the healing of the world.
