I have always known that God loves me. Mum and Dad were religious, and every Sunday took us eight kids off to Mass. Such a Catholic family - all our aunts and uncles and grandparents were Catholic, except for one relative on Mum’s side who was a Mason. We went to a Mercy school - Monte St Angelo in North Sydney. It was a good school.
“The coronavirus is showing us that each person’s true good is a common good, not only individual, and, vice versa, the common good is a true good for the person. If a person only seeks his or her own good, that person is egotistical. Instead, the person is kinder, nobler, when his or her own good is open to everyone, when it is shared. Health, in addition to being an individual good, is also a public good. A healthy society is one that takes care of everyone’s health, of all.” Pope Francis
