Flu risk less worrisome than isolation at Mass, writer says

Catholic Courier    |    03.02.2020


To the editor:

Regarding human contact at Mass: Hugging and shaking hands with people may bring on the flu bug or whatever, but I am more afraid of the isolation our neighbors might have to endure for ignoring their friends.
