Most importantly we are not alone. This time can give us with an opportunity for greater clarity about the transitions in the life of Christ. He listened deeply in the desert as he prepared for his public ministry; he withdrew to mountain tops and seashores from time to time; he lingered in the Garden of Olives when he realised that the officials were closing in on him.
Deep listening in this time can open us to deeper encounters with the Sacred.
We could make this our prayer at this time:
May all that is not love fall away. May all that is not truth fall away. May all that is not fullness fall away. May all that is not richness fall away. May all that is not peaceful fall away. May this time bring us closer to each other and bring us closer to your all-embracing love. Through and with the love of Christ,
