President Donald Trump held a call with faith leaders on Saturday where again sought reelection support and pledged the be an ally in the coronavirus recovery efforts.
The apparent simplicity but actual complexity of “cacio e pepe” may be an apt metaphor for the recipe Catholic bishops in various parts of the world appear to be trying to follow with regard to the resumption of ecclesiastical life after coronavirus lockdowns.
President Trump solicited calls from faith leaders to support his re-election bid in November amid a call to discuss church re-openings.
Appearing on the CBS newsmagazine “60 Minutes,” Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan of New York said faith is key, even as people are in isolation from others as a result of the stay-at-home orders imposed to slow a worsening of the coronavirus pandemic.
New York’s Cardinal says he hopes the global pandemic will lead to a renewed appreciation of human life.
When New York’s Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan and a group from the Archdiocese of New York visited Cuba in February, they spent quite a bit of their mission trip doing what a lot of volunteers and staffers at Catholic organizations on the island do: visiting, encouraging and caring for the elderly.
