On Saturday, March 23, the third week of Lent, Father Joseph Illo, pastor of Star of the Sea parish in San Francisco, gave a ten-minute homily on living with the coronavirus. He spoke of the quarantined seminary in Germany whose priests and seminarians are nearly all sick with the virus. He spoke of an email from a convent in Italy. “Only God can heal us.”

15-second excerpt from the homily:

“I urge you to follow these live-streamed Masses. Follow them not only with your computer but in your hearts and with your bodies, with your soul, mind, and strength. Don’t just watch them on your desk with your cup of coffee nearby, with all your other devices on.”
