Lord, bless our parish community at this difficult time.
Give me patience with myself and others so that I will not make these times any more difficult than they are already.
Grant me the ability to acknowledge my fears so that I will not hide from acting in a responsible manner.
Give me courage to overcome any selfishness that hinders my concern for others.
Grant me the grace to reach out to others by safe means and in a helpful way.
Give me courage when I am feeling lonely and the knowledge that isolation is a good thing for now and that I am never fully alone.
Grant me the gifts of kindness, patience and love.
Give me your blessing: In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
