The desire to pray was too much when he saw a statue of the Virgin Mary.

Delivery workers have been rushed off their feet more than ever during the pandemic. Yet, as a video recently shared online showed, there’s always room for a little prayer among the daily chaos.

In the video caught on a doorbell camera, the delivery man dropped off the package and then stopped to kneel in front of a statue of the Virgin Mary. He took the time to say a prayer, and then jumped up and ran back to his truck.

The 30-second video is strangely reassuring. Witnessing someone openly profess their faith in the middle of a busy work day encourages us all to remember that we are never too rushed to stop for a moment of prayer. It also shows us how powerful the Blessed Virgin is in calling us to seek the Lord.
