Headline: ASIA/BANGLADESH – A Bishop: the coronavirus teaches us the lesson of unity and the common good
Dhaka – In times of the COVID-19 pandemic, the disease that has attacked humanity, despite the suffering, some positive aspects can be seen: in a pastoral letter sent to the faithful of his diocese and Agenzia Fides, Mgr. Gervas Rozario Bishop of the diocese of Rajshahi, proposes some of them. First of all, in forced confinement at home, you have “time to dedicate yourself to family members, spending quality time with them”, he notes. In addition, the virus “makes no difference between who is rich or who is in need”, so “rich and powerful people learn to assess people in need as human beings” and teaches not to live separately, but “to be united”, notes the Bishop, who is also vice president of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Bangladesh .
