On May 20, Cardinal Raymond Burke gave a talk at the Rome Life Forum linking the coronavirus pandemic to the apparitions at Fatima. It is well worth listening to. Our Lady’s message remains as urgent and applicable as ever. The pandemic has shaken us out of our routines, and society’s enslavement to material things—be it through consumerism or communism—prevents its leaders from implementing a coherent, uplifting response. Mary teaches us to rise above to the world’s tribulations by turning to Jesus. When so many of our non-believing brethren struggle to find meaning, we Catholics are called to bear witness to the power of divine love over every form of evil.
