Like most people, I have been living in isolation for many months. I’ve been able to keep busy and occupied, thanks to physical spacing and tools such as Zoom. I’m occasionally asked what books are helpful for reflecting on this unusual period in human history.
One of the works I have been reading since Lent began is Pope Francis’, Let Us Dream – The Path to a Better Future. I originally heard about it through the regular Catholic media. But I was surprised by how many of my secular friends and acquaintances mentioned it and recommended it.
It is a superb reflection on the past year and how it is serving as an invitation for us to join in making the world safer, fairer, and healthier for all people.
