‘Missing Each Other, Missing the Lord’

As we could not receive the Sacraments during the pandemic, we were not being nourished and strengthened by them in the usual way. That is part of the reason, Pope Francis stressed that live-streamed Masses even from parish churches, and spiritual Communion, are less than the Church. Virtual Mass is not the Church. The liturgy is not a film, nor are we spectators. People have come to the realisation that ‘watching Mass’ is very different from being physically present and participating in the celebration with other members of their family and the community. For all its advantages and immediacy, the virtual is no substitute for physical presence with the assembled community.          

From the Pastoral Letter of Bishop of Ossory.
