Colombia issued their current stay-at-home orders in March due to high coronavirus numbers.

Fr. Ayala told the Los Angeles Times that he loves distributing the Eucharistic to the faithful in their cars, which allows him “to be close to the other, see their faces and expressions, and the joy and peace they experience.”

What do you think of this idea?

Pray for an end to the coronavirus pandemic!
