Evening Prayer – 8 April 2020

April 8, 2020

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

This has been a day of deep emotions, Lord

It seems to have caught up with us

We had wonderful virtual visits with dear feiedns

We had a tremendous amount of work preparing for the Triduum

It hit me tonight

So many walking through the Valley of the Shadows

Talking with the daughter of a former parishioner

She never expected her Dad to be a pandemic statistic

The grief was so deep

It would have been Mom’s birthday tomorrow

We talked with my Dad and my Mom’s sister

The waves of grief and exhaustion rolled over me/us

After some quiet contemplation

My eyes are finally growing heavy

So I lift this humble prayer to you

Dona Nobis Pacem

Grant Us Peace

A wee prayer from the heart of your exhausted Padre…
