The present crisis has forced more people to stay in and stay at home — and some, in fact, are even quarantined.
Thankfully, modern technology is making it possible to connect with our faith and to worship alone or with others from the comfort and safety of our laptop or iPhone.
Here, then, are some ideas.
Looking for daily Mass? Check out Catholic TV in Boston. It features Sunday Mass, as well, from the beautiful Basilica of the Sacred Heart at Notre Dame. That airs at 10 a.m., ET.
The station also offers Morning Prayer (at 9 a.m.) and Evening Prayer (at 7:30 p.m., along with The Rosary (at 6:30 p.m.)
Check out the full schedule.
EWTN, of course, also offers daily and Sunday Mass, plus a host of other devotions. Visit their web page for full details.
Salt & Light TV in Canada offers daily Mass a few times a day. Check out their schedule.
As a service to those who may be homebound, Give Us This Day, the daily devotional published by Liturgical Press (full disclosure: I’m a contributor) is making its devotions and Mass readings available online for free. Check it out.
Looking for The Way of the Cross this Lent? CNEWA, the agency of the Holy See where I work, recently published a booklet, adapting The Way of the Cross with Pope Francis, as it was prayed on Good Friday in Rome in 2019. A free copy of the devotion is available for order here.
As an added bonus: we have produced an exclusive video of the entire devotion for viewing at home or in small groups. You can watch it below.
As I wrote on CNEWA’s blog:
Illustrated with images from around CNEWA’s world, this extraordinary interpretation of Christ’s walk to Calvary can be prayed almost anywhere — and, we hope, offer a spirit of fraternity and consolation to a troubled world.
Praying this devotion, we walk together with those who are making their own journeys to their own Calvary — helping them to carry their crosses and offering our own prayers of faith, hope and love. As we pray at the 13th Station: “We entrust all these lives to the mercy of God our Father and the Father of all.”
Let us pray. Let us hope. And let us together as people of faith follow the words of Jesus from last Sunday’s Gospel:
“Rise and do not be afraid.”
