Time of Trial

Lord show me how to be strong and patient
in this time of difficulty. 
We have been challenged to live separated
from our loved ones. 
We are asked to sacrifice our freedom
to move around as we might like. 
We remember that in your time of trial
you were separated from your loved ones. 
But you showed what it means to love
during a time of trial. 
Help us to accept this time of separation
that we might come closer to our loved ones. 
May we love as you loved on your lonely way to Calvary.
