Maundy Thursday

Unison Prayer for Healers

May the One who blessed our ancestors,

the God Of Israel,

the Lord Jesus Christ

who rode on a donkey into Jerusalem this day.

Bless us in our world crisis! 

Bless today all those who come to sing “Hosanna”

to the King of kings from all over the world.

God, we need You and we ask Your blessings

for all those who put themselves at risk to care for the sick:

Physicians and nurses and orderlies at nursing homes

and home health aides and especially in hospitals and clinics.

Technicians, EMTs, pharmacists,

hospital social workers, and respiratory therapists.

 

We thank you for those from this congregation

who are the frontline healthcare workers,

and for all those who keep us fed and alive. 

We pray for all the families in the world

who have been stricken with this insidious virus;

especially for those of us here at our congregation,

who also have been infected like Barbara Pahel,

who went into the hospital on Wednesday,

as well as John Piccirillo’s mom, Theresa,

who is isolated in Belair and Eileen Baker,

and for so many others that each of us know,

may Your healing grace be with them now.

 

Bless, O Lord God, those who navigate the

unfolding dangers of the world each day,

to tend to those they have sworn to help.

Bless them in their coming home

and bless them in their going out.

Ease their fear.

Sustain them. 

 

God of the Universe,

Source of all breath, healer of all beings,

protect them and restore their hope,

as You do for us. 

Strengthen them,

that they may bring strength; 

Keep them in health, t

hat they may bring healing. 

Help them know again a time

when they can breathe without fear. 

Bless the sacred work of their hands.

Hear our prayers, O Lord,

and bring healing to our planet,

and our nations,

and may this plague pass from among us,

speedily and in our days.

Amen.

Prayers in this Time of Need

God of compassion,
be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation.
In their loneliness, be their consolation;
in their anxiety, be their hope;
in their darkness, be their light;
through him who suffered alone on the cross,
but reigns with you in glory,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

A Message from The Rev. Dr. James Barnum

Lockdown.
Yes there is fear.
Yes there is isolation.
Yes there is panic buying.
Yes there is sickness.
Yes there is even death.
But,
They say that in Wuhan after so many years of noise
You can hear the birds again.
They say that after just a few weeks of quiet
The sky is no longer thick with fumes
But blue and grey and clear.
They say that in the streets of Assisi
People are singing to each other
across the empty squares,
keeping their windows open
so that those who are alone
may hear the sounds of family around them.
They say that a hotel in the West of Ireland
Is offering free meals and delivery to the housebound.
Today a young woman I know
is busy spreading fliers with her number
through the neighbourhood
So that the elders may have someone to call on.
Today Churches, Synagogues, Mosques and Temples
are preparing to welcome
and shelter the homeless, the sick, the weary
All over the world people are slowing down and reflecting
All over the world people are looking at their neighbours in a new way
All over the world people are waking up to a new reality
To how big we really are.
To how little control we really have.
To what really matters.
To Love.
So we pray and we remember that
Yes there is fear.
But there does not have to be hate.
Yes there is isolation.
But there does not have to be loneliness.
Yes there is panic buying.
But there does not have to be meanness.
Yes there is sickness.
But there does not have to be disease of the soul
Yes there is even death.
But there can always be a rebirth of love.
Wake to the choices you make as to how to live now.
Today, breathe.
Listen, behind the factory noises of your panic
The birds are singing again
The sky is clearing,
Spring is coming,
And we are always encompassed by Love.
Open the windows of your soul
And though you may not be able
to touch across the empty square,
Sing.
- written by Fr. Richard Hendrick, OFM
