A bit of good news amid all the gloom- The Catholic Diocese of Chicago will ring their bells five times a day as a call to prayer:

9 a.m. – Prayer for those infected with the virus and all those who are ill

12 p.m. – Prayer for healthcare workers and those attending to the sick

3 p.m. – Prayer for first responders and essential workers

6 p.m. – Prayer for people of every nation and their leaders

9 p.m. – Prayer for those who have died today

The Churches there have suspended services as many have here as well, but I strongly praise this move on their part. We as a nation need to return to our faith as such times remind us of the fragility of life. Hopefully this will catch on elsewhere. A large number of people need it.
