The impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented crisis. We have often heard that “crisis” can mean both danger, and opportunity. In the face of the continued pandemic, new variants and outbreaks, and limited global vaccine availability, the pandemic can be an opportunity to be God’s presence of wholeness, healing, compassion and justice. This webinar will explore the recent Vatican document from the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development: Accompanying People in Psychological Distress in the Context of the COVID-19 Pandemic, Members of One Body Loved by One Love.
