Steubenville University: Wear Masks – Jesus Could Catch The Coronavirus
The video is about social distancing, living on campus, protecting the vulnerable and about wearing masks.
The “important thing” is for Father Roberson that everybody wears a mask at Mass, “The Governor of Ohio has declared that we should be wearing mask during indoor celebrations. So we are asking that.”
During Communion, also the celebrants and concelebrants will wear masks. Roberson tries to make a joke, “Wear masks! You know, Jesus is going to be exposed. We don’t want to give Him COVID.”
Talking about Holy Communion, Father Pivonka points out that he “totally understands” that the students don’t want to receive Communion on the hand, however a "but" follows: The Ohio bishops have asked to abolish Communion on the tongue and the University is going to follow them.
“I can guarantee that everybody is asked to do things we prefer not to do,” Father Pivonka adds.
