We must move forward together, as one, in a renewed spirit of fraternity and solidarity, cooperating generously for the Common Good.
If isolation, indifference, selfishness, greed, competitiveness, and other manifestations of the notorious ego were responsible for the Coronavirus, then the antidote must be the coming together of the human family. As our times force us to recognize our interconnection by the speed with which the disease is transmitting from person to person, the next step is for mankind to step out in grand solidarity with each other, giving, receiving, listening, feeling, even weeping for one another. If Corona can open up our desiccated hearts and help us to reach out to the other, I think its job will be done.
