Praying and Reflecting Together Through the Pandemic Our call as women religious in these times includes intentionally staying attentive to the deeper invitations that this global crisis is raising. To assist with this, each Monday throughout the crisis, we plan to post a simple reflection that can be used by individuals and/or groups. In each reflection we will pose some questions intended to help us be conscious of the transformation occurring within ourselves, our communities, the nation, and the global community as we live through the pandemic. The questions will invite us to be attentive to what we are experiencing around us and within us in relation to this greater transformation. We encourage you to pray with these reflections yourselves, and also to share them with your sisters and urge them to spend time with the questions – individually and, where possible, in contemplative dialogues with others. This may be one of the most important contributions we can make as women religious in this challenging time. The first reflection, Welcome All That Arrives, may be downloaded here. To unite ourselves with the larger Christian community praying for all those impacted by the virus, we remind you as well that Pope Francis has asked that on March 25, as we celebrate the Feast of the Annunciation, we pause at noon to recite the Our Father.
