In addition to prayer, we can keep holy the Lord’s Day by doing works of mercy.  Here are some things you can do even when you cannot gather with others: write a note or call a friend or family member who mightfeel lonely; donate money to organizations assisting those in need; make mealtimes this day more special; read or create something beautiful (D. Macalintal, Liturgy.Life)
