You may have already noticed that the National Review Institute has been doing some “Virus-Free Forums” — audio discussions at this time when we can’t meet together for meal. Today I launched a faith-leaders series with Fr. John Maria Devaney, O.P., a Dominican priest who works in his religious community’s health-care ministry as a chaplain in NYC hospitals. So we talk about Coronavirus and faith in these strange times.
And you’re invited to join a conversation I’ll be having Tuesday at 4 New York time with Robert Nicholson from the Philos Project about the possibility of a spiritual awakening coming from this Coronavirus struggle. Sign up here.
5. Sarah Zagorski: Nurses, counselors work past risks to help mothers in crisis

8. The delay in Supreme Court oral arguments saddens and angers me a tad. I understand why, but the current crisis highlights how ridiculous it is that the Little Sisters of the Poor are still in court – the oral arguments in their case are among the delayed. And I assume this backs everything up – which means the Philadelphia foster-care case will be further delayed, as the system is being strained more because of Coronavirus.

Tonight's lullaby, my favorite song, was written by Leonard Bernstein, Betty Comden, and Adolph Green, and is performed by Tony Bennett and Bill Evans. You know who it's for. Get some sleep—and be safe, O.K.? See you Saturday: https://t.co/9tHK7hvXl7
