  • A Prayer During the Time of the Corona Virus

    Holy Virgin of Guadalupe,
    Queen of the Angels
    and Mother of the Americas.
    We fly to you today
    as your beloved children.
    We ask you to intercede for us with your Son, as you did at the wedding in Cana.
    Pray for us, loving Mother,
    and gain for our nation and world,
    and for all our families and loved ones, the protection of your holy angels, that we may be spared the worst of this illness.
    For those already afflicted, we ask you to obtain the grace of healing and deliverance.
    Hear the cries of those
    who are vulnerable and fearful,
    wipe away their tears and help them to trust.
    In this time of trial and testing,
    teach all of us in the Church to love one another and to be patient and kind.
    Help us to bring the peace of Jesus
    to ourland and to our hearts.
    We come to you with confidence,
    knowing that you truly are
    our compassionate mother,
    health of the sick and cause of our joy.
    Shelter us under the mantle of your protection,
    keep us in the embrace of your arms,

    help us always to know
    the love of your Son, Jesus. Amen

       Sister Carol Reflects

    The pandemic lockdown came as a shock.  One day, we were planning our St. Patrick’s Day Brunch.  The next day, we were at work.  Our co-worker, Sharon, went home and didn’t come back …yet!  It was so strange that our house, so filled with people; volunteers, clients, parishioners was suddenly quiet and empty.

    As days passed,  I found some positive things began happening : more time for prayer and reflection, for trying new recipes, for making phone calls to people I hadn’t seen in a while.  I found myself reading for pleasure a lot more.  I am an avid reader of detective stories!

    What was not positive was absence.  There were no people in and out, no ESL classes, and no Mass and fellowship on Sundays.  If I went out, there was no place to go except food shopping and that was never my favorite.  There is still so much uncertainty  to deal with.

    I pray for the day when we can get together again as our church family.  I pray for all of you that you stay healthy and peaceful.
