Please keep the people of India in your prayers as they face some of the worst days of the Covid-19 pandemic. “Right now, we have 10 priests and 10 brothers who are infected,” wrote Fr. Michael Augustine, SCJ, a member of the District Council of India. “Two of them are hospitalized, the rest are being treated at home in isolation.”
One of the most seriously ill is Fr. Joseph Thambi, a young SCJ who was ordained just last month.
India has recorded one-day new case numbers of over 400,000, the highest in the world. The country is averaging over 3,000 deaths a day while hospitals struggle to find supplies, and citizens have difficulty getting vaccinated.
Let the Priests of the Sacred Heart pray for your loved ones and intentions.
