REGARDING THE CORONA VIRUS
Dear clergy and family of NCACUS,
The world seems to be in a panic in regard to the famous Corona Virus due to the constant bombarding of the medias and the governments scaring people into confinement and be prisoners of their own homes.
Throughout history, this world has had its share of plagues and viruses and yes people have lost their lives due to these catastrophes. So, then we must take precautions in trying to keep ourselves and our families safe from contracting this virus, but we must not panic and we will get through these difficult times. Even in the eye of the storm, God remains in control He guards our souls and stands with us. He is our anchor.
Our churches will not be closed to those who wish to find solace, peace, and comfort with God. It's at times like these that the Church should be in the forefront and not be afraid to face dark times. We must turn and pray to God and the Blessed Virgin Mary under the title of Mary, Mother of Hope, patroness of NCACUS, to keep us under her mantle safe and sound until this dark shadow of evil passes.
Concerning holy communion, whether you receive in the hands or on the tongue (of which the latter is the practice of the Church) will not change anything. Our clergy have been advised to wash their hands immediately before celebrating Mass.
We suggest that there be no handshaking at the peace sign and any other time before or after Mass. If we greet people then we use the “wai” gesture: you place your hands together in a prayer-like gesture and bow your head slightly.
So then we recommend that you pray the Psalms and the Holy Rosary the most powerful sacramental there is against evil, sickness and diseases. You will find peace in praying the Holy Rosary and the Psalms. The letter of St Paul to the Romans 8:31 says
"What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?"
Ps 121 says:
I lift up my eyes to the hills.
From where does my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot be moved;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, he who keeps Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is your keeper;
the Lord is your shade on your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all evil;
He will keep your life.
The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in
from this time forth and forevermore.
May God bless you and keep you. May the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you. May the Lord lift up His countenance toward you and give you peace. Amen!
