Hello, all -

Just a quick note about the above prayer.

The person who wrote it often writes a great deal of modernist non-Roman Catholic prayer, basically because he's not Roman Catholic. *wry smile* (And yes, even people in my own denomination sometimes think it's tripe. I'm certain that the great liturgies of the church had to go through many revisions before they became as beautiful as they are today.)

I'm an ordained minister of Word, Sacrament and Pastoral Care in The United Church of Canada, a protestant denomination in Canada. While I have a great deal of respect for the Roman Catholic church, my understanding of sacrament is, of course, different from that of my Roman Catholic siblings.

About the wearing of a mask... well... I, too, wish it weren't necessary. I pray, daily, that this virus will be brought under control, and the need for all of these physical distancing rules will be gone. May that day come soon!

May Christ's peace rest and remain with you, and may you and your loved ones be healthy and whole.
