“Hopefully, on a personal level, the primary response all of us have had to the COVID crisis has been prayer—the prayer of repentance, the sobering remembrance of our individual mortality, and the fragility of our institutions and technologies when confronted with unforeseen acts of God. In this regard, the arrival of the pandemic during the penitential season of Lent was no mere coincidence.”
