Offering Catholic Generosity & Mercy During the Global Pandemic
“Try not to waste these difficult days, but use them to show closeness and affection to family and friends. We must rediscover the concreteness of little things, small gestures of attention (UPRISE Works of Mercy!) we can offer those close to us, our family, our friends,” he said. “We must understand that in small things lies our treasure.”
