something came to mind I’d written months after 9/11. Everyone was asking how we could have missed the signs. I remembered the words of astronaut Frank Borman when he was asked in 1967 why NASA had not been prepared for the catastrophic launchpad fire that killed three astronauts. It was “a failure of imagination,” he said. No one imagined such a thing could happen on the ground.
That’s where I think we have been the past few weeks in this epidemic, a failure of imagination.
8. An emergency fund for families whose children go to the Brilla charter schools in some of the toughest parts of NYC. 100 percent of the donations will go to the families (to help them meet essential needs). Write Emergency Family Support Fund in the dedication line on the donation form.
I call on every Catholic priest to lead a simple Eucharistic Procession around your Church sometime before the Feast of St Joseph, March 19, for repentance, Christ’s healing hand on the Coronavirus & that all men may be Godly, manly sons & disciples of His Son Jesus Christ.
