Bless this time together today, Father, on this Divine Mercy Sunday. Have mercy on all of us, hopeless sinners all, in this time of isolation.
In this time of isolation let us never isolate ourselves from You, our only hope, our only true friend through whom all others, all else is ordered.
Never allow our bonds of lethargy to bind so tightly that they stifle our ability to live and move and have our being in You.
Instead, allow this isolation from one another to move us, more and more, to find our center in You, Holy Father.
Help us to let go of our need to control, our need to direct the course of our lives.
Instead help us to find that our only true need is You, Holy Lord, that only through You, will we discover the calm and peace and freedom that passes all understanding.
In Christ’s name, I pray. Amen
