4/12: “I’m living this as a time of great uncertainty. It’s a time for inventing, for creativity… The creativity of the Christian needs to show forth in opening up new horizons, opening windows, opening transcendence toward God and toward people, and in creating new ways of being at home. It’s not easy to be confined to your house. What comes to my mind is a verse from the Aeneid in the midst of defeat: the counsel is not to give up, but save yourself for better times, for in those times remembering what has happened will help us. Take care of yourselves for a future that will come. And remembering in that future what has happened will do you good. Take care of the now, for the sake of tomorrow. Always creatively, with a simple creativity, capable of inventing something new each day. Inside the home that’s not hard to discover, but don’t run away, don’t take refuge in escapism, which in this time is of no use to you. This crisis is affecting us all, rich and poor alike, and putting a spotlight on hypocrisy…. It’s a time for integrity. Either we are coherent with our beliefs or we lose everything…. Every crisis contains both danger and opportunity: the opportunity to move out from the danger and to learn to understand and contemplate the natural world. We need to reconnect with our real surroundings. This is the opportunity for conversion.” Pope Francis
