Thought for the day
“Since I have neither bread nor wine nor altar, I will raise myself beyond these symbols… I will make the whole earth my altar and on it will offer you all the labors and suffering of the world.”
Fr. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Sunday: Passion Sunday
Such love pure, pure as the whitest snow; such love, weeps for the shame I know; Such love, paying the debt I owe; O Jesus such love.
Such love, Stilling my restlessness; such love; filling my emptiness; such love; showing me holiness; O Jesus, such love.
Such love springs from eternity; such love, streaming through history; such love, fountain of life to me; O Jesus, such love
we entrust to your tender care
those who are ill or in pain,
knowing that whenever danger threatens
your everlasting arms are there to hold them safe.
Comfort and heal them,
and restore them to health and strength;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Lord, you taught us to love our neighbour and to care for those in need as if we were caring for you. In this time of anxiety, give us strength to comfort the fearful, to tend to the sick and to assure the isolated of our love and your love. In your names sake : Amen
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord
