Prashanth: “Living by myself in the rectory during COVID hasn’t been a big difference. But saying Mass and doing adoration by myself—that was different. For a while, people didn’t come to Mass. Saying Mass on camera—it’s not the same…
During the pandemic, I’ve had a lot of time. We didn’t stop saying Mass. Before the pandemic, I used to take Mondays off. Now I don’t. And I still have a lot of time. Even the hospital now has fewer calls for us. I used to visit patients every day. I’d take a walk in the evening and visit with them. Now that’s stopped.”
