Cardinal Nichols: Now is the time for the phased reopening of churches

In his homily for Pentecost Sunday, Cardinal Vincent Nichols questions why churches have not been allowed to open for private prayer, especially when car showrooms and outdoor markets can open on Monday 1 June and non-essential shops from 15 June. He specifically asks why churches have been “excluded from this decision?”The opening of churches, even if only for private prayer, helps nurture faith which is a “vital contribution to our common good” the Cardinal says. He goes onto add that faith is a “motivation for the selfless care of the sick and dying” and will help play a key role in the “rebuilding of our society.”Acutely aware of the importance of opening churches safely, the Cardinal stresses that “We are confident that we can do so. We have developed expert guidance. We are ready to follow the Government’s guidelines as soon as they are finalised.”He questions “the risk to a person who sits quietly in a church which is being thoroughly cleaned, properly supervised and in which social distancing is maintained?” Adding that “the benefits of being able to access places of prayer is profound, on individual and family stability and, significantly, on their willingness to help others in their need.”…………To Read full homily please view CBEWC website
