Dia Dhaoibh a chairde, Hello to all in the Parish of St Michael’s!
As a community we are laid low as we have never been before. We are forced to live lives of sacrifice and penitence. We have had to let go of the joys and consolation of physical communion with each other and with those whom we love. In various ways we are being deprived of all we felt we could depend upon: health, work, freedom, pleasure, company…
We are in a desert place.
We thank God as a faith community that we can say in God and Jesus Christ we trust.
Psalm 23 reminds us:
The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want,
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside still waters,
He restores my soul….
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for You are with me.
We have decided to post our Lenten Celebration for Healing and Reconciliation for you. We hope you may find it helpful in your prayer life this Passion week. It can be prayed alone or with each other –on line – or with your household – while maintaining a safe distance of course!
As we pray, we hold each other in our hearts, and we remember especially, those who are
ill and those who have died from Coronavirus and their families – around the world.
We ask your protection Lord on each of us, and our families, this Lent and Easter time 2020.
Solas Chríost Linn / May the Light of Christ Guide and Guard us on our way.
