Evoking and sharing the experience
In many countries the emergency has been declared, in others they are preparing themselves to the same… This is an unprecedented situation in history. We had never seen before that entire countries could paralyze themselves: all productive industrial activity, all public and private meeting spaces are closed. Everything is caused by an invisible agent, a virus, a tiny living cell that generates fear and panic, because it knows how to ally itself with other companions of destruction.
The truth is that we are confined at home, at the moment for some weeks, because the experts and scientists say that this is the first step to be able to control its invisible expansion. We are being motivated by saying that we have to „PROTECT OURSELVES IN ORDER TO PROTECT OTHERS”. It is not allowed to leave the beloved home, just go to work, those who can do it, go to the shops for food and medicines, essential items. Everything is closed for meetings, even mistrusting the churches, which is not surprising for me in this secularized society…
Moment of reflection for each person to evoke the situation in regard to this pandemic…
Listening to the song: Nada te turbe (Taizé)
In case it helps you to share:
- How do I place myself before this global challenge?
- What concerns, worries, questions am I asking to myself…?
- What opportunities am I discovering…?
- What am I doing day after day…?
- What feelings have I got inside me…?
- How do I imagine the “after”, when we may have overcome this challenge?
