Not long ago I read the Virus Crisis chapter in Mom to Mom, Day to Day. Now family members (including myself) are suffering from colds, viral acute sinusitis, and ear infections. We are officially living in survival mode. I know that we aren’t the only ones suffering right now. I have family and friends who are also sick and suffering a great deal more and my thoughts and prayers are with them every day.
So Hubby and I decided to start praying a novena to Our Lady of Lourdes for all those who are suffering and in need of prayers. There is so much suffering all around us; everyone suffers.
Apart from prayer and suffering (and listening to Fr. Stan Fortuna), we’ve been enjoying lots of soup, steam, teas and pain-fever reducers.
