God in the time of coronavirus, part II- with Sister Norma Pimintel
Apr 10th, 2020 by Beliefs
Last episode we spoke to Father James Martin to ask simple questions about God, suffering, and the pandemic. His episode is the anchor of a daisy chain of conversations taking us around the world – faith to faith, place to place.
Father Martin nominated our next guest, Sister Norma Pimintel, the Executive Director of Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley. Her position servicing immigrants and refugees in the borderlands gives her unique perspective. If the pandemic can come for anyone from Prime Ministers to Louisiana Parishioners... what will we learn about human equality in the face of such a threat?
Sister Pimintel spoke to Beliefs Producer Jay Woodward from her office in Texas.
This episode is part of a series of interviews speaking to the moral, ethical and spiritual takeaways from the global pandemic experience.
