Re-discovering the gift of reading and renewing our faith during the Covid19 Pandemic

The Covid19 pandemic is impacting and changing the lives of everyone, young or old, healthy or sick. The government is urging a stay at home, self-isolate policy and the Catholic Bishop’ Conference of England and Wales is stopping daily and Sunday Masses from Friday March 20 until further notice. The virus is also impacting on the other sacraments too – baptisms, weddings and confession have been curtailed for the time being, as social distancing and self-isolation, are ways of combating this terrible pandemic which is sweeping the world. We are social animals who aren’t created to be alone – indeed, as the authors of the book of Genesis noted, ‘It is not good for man to be alone’ (Genesis 1). However, as the sage said, there is a time for everything under the sun (Ecclesiastes 3) and so now is a time to retreat, to withdraw, to reduce our social contact and to be still and to know that God is God.  It is providential and part of God’s plan this year is dedicated to a renewed appreciation and understanding of the role of Sacred Scriptures in our lives. We access the Bible, this great jewel of faith, through the gift of reading. Our self-imposed exile can be a God given opportunity to renew our faith, pray a little more and grow in faith by reading and reflecting.  Here is some recommended reading during a time of self-isolation or simply as Lectio Divina, during the seasons of Lent/Eastertide.
