The Next Step...

 


Let me recollect the steps from the past 19 months...


Two weeks to flatten the curve.

Lockdowns work.

Masks work.

Vaccines work.

Segregation works.

All of the above works


Where I live, we are at the segregation stage, heading towards an all of the above scenario. 

For now, the focus is to separate jabbed from unjabbed. The unjabbed get no rights, privileges, and, in many cases, jobs. The jabbed get to go to football games, buy alcohol, and work. They will also, by extension, have to pay for all the upcoming EI claims from the unjabbed. Of course this will not actually stop the spread of COVID (as though it were something we could control by creating policies). So it will morph into an all of the above hybrid as we march past Thanksgiving and into winter.

The real question is: what are the next steps?


Boosters work...

Vaccinating children works...

Taking away church works...

Taking away children works...

Poverty works...

Imprisonment works...

All of the above works...


I do not have answers to what will happen. But before we all freak out about what the future holds, take a step back, pause, and find a peaceful spot. Perhaps in front of the Blessed Sacrament, or even somewhere in nature. Then simply meditate on these two words, oft spoken by Our Lord: 

"Fear not."

There is a profound message in these words. May our next step be to find out what it is.
