“Every human being has a great, yet often unknown gift: to care, to be compassionate, to become present to the other, to listen, to hear and receive–If that gift would be set free and made available — Miracles could take place”
Henri Nouwen

Prayer for a Pandemic

by Joan Chittister

God of light
and God of mystery,
give us the faith to see you
in the grey dimness
of this time.

Give us the heart to hear,
in the silence of the sick,
the call to care for those
in pain.

Give us the courage
to find you
where you do not now
appear to be.

      We’d love to have you! This is a discussion group, not a lecture or talk. We read sections of the book each week and then discuss on Sunday morning. Are you interested in this? If so, I’ll email you the details.
