Dear CTIS Community,
The Church basks in the light of her Risen Lord! Even amid the COVID-19 outbreak, with disruptions to daily life, work, and public worship, Christians still draw courage and hope from faith in the Resurrection of our Lord. We believe that Christ has conquered death itself, and is present with us in the Holy Spirit. This knowledge is the basis for Christian bravery in the face of earthly danger. But it does not result in reckless bravado, because it is founded on charity. While the faithful do not fear the virus, we are called to be prudent and to respect others who do – St. Paul taught us the valuable lesson that only knowledge grounded on love leads us to true freedom. (1 Cor. 8) So let us abide by the civil regulations of social distancing out of observing the Lord’s command to love our neighbour.
With the threat of increasing cases and a prolonged shut-in, our neighbours may be finding little cause to be hopeful. Here is where Easter hope is needed! As we rely on technology for our learning, so too we utilise the internet to maintain our social bonds. Participate in socially creative ways to help those who are burdened during this time. Christians can also be conduits of hope by being selective in their social media messaging. Instead of forwarding messages of dread reinforcing this fearful climate of mutual suspicion, choose to circulate inspirational and hopeful things. Through our prayer and communications, we reflect the joy and hope of looking forward to the time when we can restore, rebuild, and grow together again.
And please keep attending your online classes! Pray for us as we anticipate returning to our regular operations when the time comes. On behalf of the Staff and Boards of CTIS, I wish you all a Blessed Eastertide.
Resurrexit, sicut dixit, alleluia!
