By John Hertz: The other day I passed a Catholic church that had a sign out “Masses and services temporarily postponed. Church open for adoration and prayer.”
I thought, That’s the spirit. Pun intended.
Here in California the Governor on account of the pandemic virus COVID-19 has ordered us to stay home, and operations with physical mingling to pause, unless essential. Even to a disaster one can overreact. One had better not underreact. Some of each can be found. I report what one church announced.
I’m not a Catholic. I’m not even a Christian (I’m a Jew, Christians’ older brother – which reminds me how rich brown – no capital letters in his name – used to say he was everyone’s rich brother). You may be a Muslim, or Baha’i, or pagan, or none of the above – pun intended.
If you’re a Catholic, here’s my applause. For the rest of us, here’s another of my maxims. Let us do as well in our way as they in their way.
