It has been over two months since we began, what in spiritual terms can be seen as a desert journey through an unprecedented experience of a pandemic. It has been a time of fear and uncertainty. It has also been a time of display of profound compassion and heroic courage. But such a time is also a time for reflection and learning. I believe that God seeks to teach us what we need to learn in all the circumstances that befall our lives, and I think it is important to reflect on what we are being called to learn in these circumstances which have overtaken us.
