TWO ARDENT VIEWERS OF THE STREAMED
ST FRANCIS OF ASSISI SERVICE
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 that are brought low,
That we might rejoice in your comfort
Knowing that nothing can separate us from your love. Amen.
May you find blessing and peace at this difficult time.
“Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world, which I find myself constantly walking around in the daytime, and falling in at night. I miss you like hell.”
― Edna St. Vincent Millay
One of the things this pandemic crisis has emphasised for me and probably for some of you is the dreadful yearning we have for those friends, relatives and colleagues who are kept from us by the restrictions. YouTube and Zoom were novel and fun for a while but they are now small comforts compared for that which is vital for humans - real live social contact. Worship in this brave new world seems lacking to me and the absence of all of you is increasingly difficult.
One of the things that gets us through is memory, that powerful and wonderful faculty of humans where we recall happy occasions and experiences in our minds and re-live them or paint pictures of substance that make us smile. The Eucharist is our great corporate remembrance where we recall Jesus’ last loving action for us, where we remember our existence as a community gathered together, where we remember the spiritual uplift from singing together.
As we continue to face isolation and difficulty can I urge you to ‘remember’ and in so doing try to fill in the holes and gaps that distance from each other is creating. As we do this be assured that this current state of things will not last forever and that one day soon we will be back as a community praising God.

Lighten our darkness, Lord we pray, and by your great mercy defend us from all perils and dangers of this night; for the love of your only Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Grant us, Lord, the lamp of charity which never fails, that it may burn in us and shed its light on those around us , and that by its brightness we may have a vision of that holy City, where dwells the true and never-failing light, Jesus Christ our Lord. amen.
