Prayer for Tuesday, March 31-click for full prayer

When you go out and see the empty streets, 

the empty stadiums, the empty train platforms, 

don’t say to yourself, “It looks like the end of the world.”  


What you’re seeing is love in action.  

What you’re seeing, in that negative space, 

is how much we do care for each other, 

for our grandparents,

for our immuno-compromised brothers and sisters, 

for people we will never meet.


People will lose jobs over this.  

Some will lose their businesses.

And some will lose their lives.  

All the more reason to take a moment, 

when you’re out on your walk, 

or on your way to the store, 

or just watching the news, 

to look into the emptiness and marvel at all that LOVE.


Let it fill you and sustain you.


It is the most remarkable act of global solidarity we may ever witness!

When This Is All Over

When this is all over,

And sanity’s restored,

Don’t take life for granted,

As we did before


When this is all over,

The clouds will all clear,

Take hold of your loved ones,

Hug and hold them near.


When this is all over,

We’ll hear the birds sing,

Listen to their melodies,

The joy that they bring


When this is all over,

And children can play,

Let them wild and free,

To make up for lost days.


When this is all over,

Remember the brave,

Who wore scrubs and gowns

And the countless they saved.
