This is Bishop Michael Burbidge of the Catholic Diocese of Arlington. We have largely returned to normal following the pandemic, but not everything will remain the same. Our daily routines have changed. Terms such as “telework”, “zoom call” and “remote learning” will remain a part of the permanent landscape. So, it is the perfect time to introduce, or re-introduce, something far more important into your daily routine: God. More specifically, prayer. For the time it takes to walk from your car to your front door, you have time to say a prayer. For the time it takes to log onto your computer, you have time to say a prayer. As Pope Francis reminds us, “Our prayer cannot be reduced to an hour on Sundays. It is important to have a daily relationship with the Lord.”
Therefore, commit to making God part of your daily routine!
