Fr. Tom Hoar, SSE, president of St. Edmund's Retreat, reflects on Mary's response at the Wedding Feast at Cana when she told the servant: "Do whatever He tells you." As we grapple with the mounting cultural anxiety, Father encourages us to meditate on Christ's Way of the Cross and Peter's stepping out of the boat in faith.
Fr. Tom Hoar, SSE, president of St. Edmund's Retreat, reflects on the relic of St. Edmund of Canterbury housed in the Chapel of Our Lady of the Assumption Chapel on Enders Island in Mystic, CT—the severed arm of an incorrupt saint, one of the largest relics in North America. This same relic which has brought healing to so many is a powerful witness to the courage and trust we need in this current crisis.
Fr. Tom Hoar, SSE, president of St. Edmund's Retreat, invites us to respond to the current crisis as a true community of Faith. Even as we comply with Federal and State guidelines requiring us to maintain social distancing—even as we refrain from gathering for Mass—we do so with an inner peace and trust that God's faithfulness will never disappoint.
