Catholic Spiritual Medicine During the Pandemic
Catholic Ministries, Apostolates and Businesses offer Spiritual Sustenance
Catholics are responding to the pandemic with spiritual resourcefulness. A broad array of initiatives from CMN members and more, are helping respond to fear with faith and provide relief from panic through prayer and practical action. Discover some examples. Bishop Barron is offering live-streamed daily mass. Families can connect with My Catholic Doctor for virtual doctor visits from the comfort of home. For everyone who has kids home from school, Catholic Brain is offering FREE access to their entire platform of thousands of Catholic games and activities. This content entertains children while also giving hope in Christ to calm their fears. This special access lasts till Divine Mercy Sunday.
Catholic individuals and organizations are uniquely positioned to offer hope in the midst of troubling times. Catholic apostolates and media are gathering thousands of prayer warriors interceding for the physical and spiritual health of all affected by the virus. Relevant Radio, EWTN, Shalom World TV, and CatholicTV provide an amazing collection of high quality faith-affirming programming, often accessed easily online, that will provide greater peace of mind than any toilet paper stockpile. Holy Cross Family Ministries: Family Rosary USA offers an array of resources to experience help and comfort through family prayer.
All of us at CMN pray that Catholics will continue to respond to the difficulties everyone is facing during Lent this year in ways that help others to renew their trust in God, and show that the joy of the Lord is our strength
