The Covid-19 could awaken man’s spiritual impulses and inspire him to return to his ‘birthright,’ which is to follow the Christian mandate to love God, neighbor, and self. It carries the unambiguous message that life is both short and precarious and that we should spend whatever days we have allotted to us by living authentically, that is, in accord with our spiritual impulses. If this were to eventuate, the current pandemic would have engendered a positive and critically needed result. Let us pray that that will be the case.
