Wednesday, April 7, 2021 is World Health Day

The theme this year is Building a fairer, healthier world. https://www.who.int/campaigns/world-health-day/2021

Conditions for good health, mental and physical health, are so different throughout the world, how could we, who have so much to help us maintain good health, be involved in building a fairer, healthier world?

Perhaps we might begin with our own health and wellness. Credible resources in studies of mental health list three basic needs common to all human beings of all ages and stages, that help us feel good about ourselves. We have a need to feel competent, to have some autonomy and to be related/connected with others.

World Health Day is just a day. Can it help us be reminded of our responsibility for caring for our own health, resilience and positive approach to everyday life in the world in which WE live?

As young as he is, he manages more or less to sit still during the Mass. Usually he and his grandmother sit on the outside aisle, but this time they were in the center aisle. The little boy had an unobstructed view of the main altar, which he seemed to enjoy as he was hanging off the pew looking at the sanctuary most of the time.

As soon as the priest came around the altar to distribute Holy Communion, the boy recognized the moment. He knew this was when he walked up with everyone else. He didn’t receive the host, of course, but he got a blessing. On Holy Thursday as soon as people got up for Communion, he jumped into the aisle and motioned to his grandmother to hurry as he excitedly jumped up and down. Over his small mask his eyes were smiling.
