The COVID-19 Pandemic: Maybe it's time to pray and maybe it's time to believe in God

With the new delta strain of Covid-19 causing havoc and spreading faster than its predecessors, I couldn't help but think that this may be a losing battle for humanity.  The way it's behaving, it seems that we won't be able to create a vaccine before it can generate another variant that is partially not affected by the vaccine.  Lockdowns which are meant to slow the spread of the virus are causing damage to the economy and to people's mental health.

In situations where I think the situation becomes almost insurmountable and unbearable, I think it helps to pray to God.  Pray to God for strength and for guidance.  Pray to God for possible healing.  

When science is rendered helpless sometimes miracles take over if God wills it.

I guess we should put ourselves in the shoes of the leper who approached Jesus Christ and asked for his healing. "Please. Please. Don't turn away from me.", he said. "If you are willing, you will be able to make me clean again."

Lord God, glory be to you forever.  If you are willing, please heal the land from this Covid 19 pandemic.  This we ask you O Lord Jesus Christ.

Upon Friar Review: Glowing reviews for The Chosen

 I like the Youtube channel Upon Friar Review.  It's about two Franciscan friars reviewing movies and shows in this channel and I love the way how they deepen my understanding of my Christian faith with the movies and shows that they review. And I am very glad that they have reviewed one of my favourite shows today: The Chosen.  I also like the fact that I share most of their point-of-view about the shows and they teach me as well about it.  So below are the Youtube links as they review Seasons 1 and 2 of The Chosen.   Also, I've linked the headings below to related Amazon items that may interest you.

The 12 Apostles

  In these days he went out to the mountain to pray; and all night he continued in prayer to God. And when it was day, he called his disciples, and chose from them twelve, whom he named apostles; Simon, whom he named Peter, and Andrew his brother, and James and John, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot, and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.

The Book of Job: Synopsis and Lessons

  The Book of Job is a part of the Hebrew Bible and the Old Testament of the Christian Bible. It is considered one of the most profound and challenging books in the Bible. The central character is Job, a wealthy and righteous man living in the land of Uz. He is known for his piety and devotion to God. Job's life takes a dramatic and tragic turn when Satan challenges his faithfulness. Satan suggests to God that Job's righteousness is a result of his prosperity and that he would curse God if he were to face suffering. God allows Satan to test Job's faith, but with the condition that he does not harm Job physically. Job's suffering begins with the loss of his wealth, his children, and his health. He is afflicted with painful sores and is left in misery. Throughout his ordeal, Job's friends, Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar, come to visit him and attempt to provide explanations for his suffering. They suggest that Job must have sinned grievously to warrant such punishment, u
