May 16 - As society and the parishes begin to re-open, I beg you to be gentle with each other. For some it will be too slow and for others, they will flinch when the tape on pews is removed. Especially at church, we should be patient. Also remember that we continue to have many vulnerable people around us. At the very least, most of our children have not been vaccinated. Their parents will be vigilant. So, take a deep breath. After a year of training, our atmosphere of caution will not disappear overnight.
