One of the graces that has come out of the pandemic has been the spread of awareness of the new tools available to us for overcoming the problem of physical distance. We can now meet remotely, and I suspect that the potential of this is only beginning to be realised. One of the remote meetings I am involved in is a daily morning prayer and compline group. Morning prayer is at 8 and compline is at 9pm. There is a couple who lead it and various individuals come or don't come - there is no pressure or compulsion. People attend as and when they can. We are a dozen or so. This is real community in a new form. Alleluia!
