Fr. Kevin Zubel, Local Superior at St. Gerard’s Louisiana, is recording a series of videos “The Light of the Resurrection Has Not Been Dimmed: Reflections in the Time of Pandemic.” Fr. Kevin begins from the premise that “In our present situation of restriction and limitation brought on by the pandemic, we turn to God for guidance. What we find when we turn to our Lord, especially in this season of Resurrection, is not a message of restriction, but of hope and abundance.”
The videos were distributed by email to the over 150,000 subscribers to the Redemptorists online mail list on successive Fridays in May. They can now be found on the Redemptorist Denver Province website and on the Province YouTube page.
The online Reflections are part of the Denver Province’s continuing efforts to expand their online ministries while the quarantine measures remain in place. As Fr. Kevin explained, “In this time of uncertainty and difficulty many of us would naturally turn to the churches, but now we find that the churches are closed or limited. We can’t gather together in person and share our lives in the way to which we’re accustomed.”
