Wearing the Mask in Church
St Patrick’s Cathedral Parramatta
Today the government placed even more restrictions upon the people, making it compulsory for us to wear masks indoors, including while shopping and in the churches, or risk being fined. I was quite upset and felt like crying in church as we were all forced to wear a mask.
This morning during the Holy Mass, I was feeling disappointed and disheartened. I complained to our Lord saying, “Lord, I feel embarrassed. It’s so horrible wearing a mask,”
Lord Jesus said, “Do not be afraid, be courageous and trust Me and feed My sheep because they need it.”
I said, “Lord, maybe the real little sheep would probably listen, but not people, they do not listen.”
Our Lord smiled and said, “Yes, but you must keep repeating, over and over again to them.”
Referring to the restrictions placed on the people, He said, “Today, I give you hope. Nothing lasts forever. It will all pass. Do not worry; no one can harm you.”
Thank you, Lord Jesus, for giving us hope and courage. Lord Jesus, we trust in You.
