May 17 - We try to be a pro-life people dedicated to the sacredness of human life at all stages. That includes the baby in utero and the elderly person on a ventilator. They are dependent and fragile needing someone to speak for them. Now we are being forced to show it and move beyond pious words or bumper stickers. Some will argue that in the balance of things, we can’t waste time with elderly. They will contend they are destined to die anyway. They have diminishing value. Yet for us, all are precious in the eyes of God and deserve dignity. We are all chafing at the bit to get back our lives. But in a small way, that pesky mask is a sign of respect for anyone who is vulnerable. As our restrictions start to relax, let’s remember our Christian responsibility to everyone. “Whatever you did for the least of these, you did for me” MT 25:40
