Avoiding Physical Crowds

Cardinal George of Chicago posted a short note about advice he was given recently concerning being around people with his health challenges:
This week, the doctors told me to avoid crowds because there are periods in the treatment of cancer with chemotherapy when the immune system is low.  Even a common cold can become an uncommon danger.
More than ever, one comes to appreciate the forms of presence that don’t depend on physical proximity.  In faith, we believe that we are always surrounded by persons who are invisible: Jesus and his friends who are also ours, the angels and saints.
