Provincial's Musings

We began the year 2022 with the fast spread of the Omicron variant of the Covid virus. What might we learn from the pandemic so far? That human life is fragile, yet precious and full of possibilities and therefore accept reality as it unfolds; abandon beliefs that are unreasonable; take time to appreciate the other; and pause to embrace humanism. Quite simply, if we fail each other, we fail as a society. During this Ignatian Year, reflecting on Ignatius’ conversion, teaches us patience, hope and above all, solidarity in times of crisis.
