Lenten Reflection – Week Six

Week Six: Water and Livelihood
This crisis is bringing us an opportunity to experience what few generations in history have ever the privilege of knowing: a generational mission; the exhilaration of a compelling moral purpose; a shared and unifying cause; the thrill of being forced by circumstances to put aside the pettiness and conflict that so often stifle the restless human need for transcendence; the opportunity to rise.
When we do rise, it will fill our spirits and bind us together.
Those who are now suffocating in cynicism and despair will be able to breathe freely.
Those who are now suffering from loss of meaning in their lives will find hope.
When we rise, we will experience an epiphany as we discover that this crisis is not really about politics at all.
It is a moral and spiritual challenge.
