Having the theological virtues of charity, faith and hope that Christ is not dormant but always working through His Church.

In order to continue doing the will of his Father in the world, Christ works unceasingly through the Church. He operates through his ministers, and hence he remains always the source and wellspring of the unity of their lives.” (Decree - Presbyterorum Ordinis - On The Ministry And Life Of Priests # 14, n 2 – Vatican II).

“Fidelity to Christ cannot be separated from faithfulness to his Church.” (ibid # 14, n 3).

So these hard times serve as purification and reform in the Church as it has also has happened in past times.
