On April 15, 2021, the Sister Mary Schmidt Lecture series was broadcast live through the first virtual lecture in this series. Catherine O’Donnell, author of Elizabeth Seton: American Saint, presented “We Cannot Quarantine Compassion”. Drawing on a digital archive of COVID-19 that she and her colleagues created, Catherine reflected on social justice teachings and discussed ways that Elizabeth Seton’s life offers a guide for useful and compassionate approaches to helping ourselves and others cope with the pandemic.
