These days there can be a feeling
of impending doom, O Lord.
Help us to trust that you will not
abandon us, while suffering flows
around the world.
Lord, let us trust in your goodness
to strengthen us in this time of pandemic
that we may know, love
and serve you
with greater zeal each and every day.
We make this prayer, in the Name
of Jesus Christ Our Lord.
— By a Columban Missionary
