“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo. “So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” (J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring)

The resources included on this page are intended to strengthen and encourage the Church as we enter a season of global health crisis, social distancing, and physical isolation. We will continue to update this post with relevant, trusted resources as we become aware of them.
