A promise amidst the “panxiety”

Corona virus.

COVID-19.

Pandemic.

We take all necessary precautions. Buy the items we need. Practice self-isolation and social distancing.

We’ve done all we can. Or have we?

We all seem to have a list of things about which we’re anxious. Pandemic leads to what I might call “panxiety.”

It’s everywhere. We all see it, experience it, feel it. Yet in the midst of panxiety also comes a recollection, a feeling, a memory, a belief, of promise.

And for me, St. Paul’s words from Romans provided that promise: “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus, our Lord” (Romans 8:38-39).

Nothing can separate us from God’s love.

Not pandemic.

Not panxiety.
