THE COVID 19 PRAYER
God of Love,
we make our prayers through Christ the Healer.
for those of us in Ireland
and the thousands in our world
who are suffering from the Coronavirus.
Bring calm to those who are anxious.
Bring courage to those who help others.
Bring comfort to those bereaved
because a loved one has died
through the Covid 19 disease.
Give wisdom to our leaders,
support to healthcare workers
and fortitude to us all.
May our communion with Christ in prayer
bring us serenity
in these days of uncertainty and distress.
This we ask
in the name of Jesus our Lord and brother. Amen.
UNBIND HIM! LET HIM GO FREE!
And wasn't it Martha who fussed and worried
about so many things?
And Mary it was, who - in contemplation -
seemed to have made the wiser choice?
Yet when their beloved Lazarus died,
Martha met the Lord
and professed the resurrection
while Mary waited on His arrival
to admonish and even blame His absence
for her brother's death.
God who made the blind to see,
the lame to walk,
be with me in my weakness.
Help me hear Your call
to unbind others and let them go free;
that I might trust Your presence
even and especially when
it is Your absence that I feel.
In days of fear,
be my companion on the road.
In nights of terror,
be the whisper that reassures.
In time of isolation,
be the gentle light
leading me kindly on.
THE EASTER VIGIL
In the light of Covid-19, when the Vigil is to be available on webcam, and given the restrictions of light/darkness and the length of the Celebration, it is possible to divide it into three parts and celebrate in three stages e.g. 3:00 pm, 6:00 pm and 9:00 pm
