Seems the Catholic Church is having issues with weekly mass attendance due to flu, at epidemic like conditions in some areas.
I’m assuming “thoughts and prayers” are having the usual effects. Honestly, I’m not gleeful, have family and friends attending these weekly rituals.
We have a long tradition of holding hands in a circle and singing the Peace Song. I recently suspended this practice. When I announced it, I said we would all be safe and keep our hands to ourselves for a while. We will definitely put some hand sanitizers in the sanctuary soon though.
