about this site
Catholic Sensibility is a personal blog by a Catholic layperson with comments and occasional other writings by Catholics and non-Catholics. We make no particular claims to have the completeness of a Roman Catholic expression of Christianity. It contains opinion, interpretation, and personal musings. That’s it. Nothing official or authoritatively connected to the Magisterium.

A British football manager is quoted after more than half of his league’s matches were called off yesterday:
Big-time teams in any sport can afford to be diligent. Ones with fewer resources, less so. Perhaps the same is true of businesses, families, churches, individual persons. The less wealthy seem to be under more pressure to keep their jobs, but the high and mighty are being felled by the virus in noticeable numbers too.
I observe a great fatigue and impatience. On television it would have all been resolved by now. In Australian sport, we see no masking or distancing, like in this event on the 29th:
Down under, perhaps things are indeed under control. The young miss commented things are spread out on their continent. Geographically, she’s right. Elsewhere in the world, we have poor leadership, distribution hang-ups, and a lot of infighting over the best way to sustain an economy.
To be honest, I feel the virus fatigue myself–the psychological not the physical. Maybe I’m a little less attentive to my hands, and feeling a little more bold about shopping. Maybe I’m better off staying home a bit more often.
