Headline: ASIA/SRI LANKA – Towards Mission Sunday: the pandemic is an opportunity to give God’s mercy to those who suffer
Colombo – “Covid-19 Pandemic is the best opportunity to have a sense that our call involves in helping the poor, spend time around those who suffer and our heart move towards the helpless and hopeless, to bring the mercy and love of God the Father for every man. Pope’s call during this troubled times is a pointer and a boost for us as religious, priests and baptized laity: we cannot keep our ‘spirits buried behind closed doors’ seeking security, and concerned about our well being. The protocols of existing situations and mutual empathy: we can be beacons of hope and a sign of the certainty of God’s presence in the suffering”: this is what Sister Alexander Lilly writes to Agenzia Fides.
