    Orthodox church fights the virus from -above-

    https://www.themoscowtimes.com/2020/...m-above-a69739

    whatever one believes it is the peoples own thing. but i think it is good that the churches stay open. as long as all the safety measures are in place and also strictly enforced. 2 of the most important points to observe. DO NOT KISS ANY ICONS.AND DO NOT KISS THE HAND OF THE PRIEST.-Man- can not live from bread alone. and when people need or want Church assistance, so it should be,as much as possible. and as safe as possible. some people might laugh it off and say,well no one ever came back to tell us about the -pearly gates-. some things one just has to believe. from -my- catholic church? silence only... what does the Bishop in Vienna say, because the churches are closed?- believers are being absolved, they do not have to go to church on Sunday,they can go on any other day as well-

    It seems there are many doctors and other hospital workers who catch this disease. Probably because they are in continual contract with people who already have it. If you just contact it once or twice, get a couple of germs, then your body can vanquish the small dose. But a doctor, continually in contact with the disease, would be overwhelmed with many doses. Same for a priest or in the family.
    If you can't make a mistake, you can't make anything.

    there is no argument about that. but i am also sure that special elder or old people might want the -last rites- to receive. or just someone to be there in their last minutes. but thinking of it, it is people like MOTHER Theresa who was in Calcuttoa with the sick and poor. it is the NUNS who are praying and tending to the dying. and not to compare with the virus, but the only MAN who took pity on the dead and wounded, even if it was under different circumstances, it was war. It was Henry Dunant, the founder of the Red Cross. the Pope and the Patriarch and the Mufti can pray in their fancy palaces,Churches and Temples. But it is the people -on the ground- who need help and assistance.
