May 15, 2020, 9:00am America/New_York
Where there is grief, fear and loss, there too is the grace needed to bring new life…greater life. This is the Good News in pandemic. This is our tenacious Christian hope for a world that is suffering. Let us explore this unique moment of opportunity, envisioning the Church’s pastoral response and how it can unleash the transformational, evangelizing Spirit of God to trigger a New Pentecost. What if this is the moment of our lifetime as Catholic leaders?
