Chapters during the Coronavirus Pandemic
We meet weekly, every Friday at 11:30am, via Zoom, to pray the Office of Sext together, and to have the appointed chapter from the Holy Rule read out, followed by a brief chapter talk delivered by our Prior, or a brother of our community. We then spend some time studying and sharing or simply socialising. We thank God for modern internet technology to make this possible!
A Prayer for those affected by the Coronavirus Pandemic
God of healing and hope, in Jesus you meet us in our places of pain and fear. Look with mercy on those who have contracted the new virus, on any who are vulnerable, and on all who feel in danger. Through this time of global concern, by your Holy Spirit bring out the best not the worst in us. Make us more aware of our interdependence on each other, and of the strength that comes from being one body in you. Through Christ the wounded healer. Amen.
Prayer by the Revd Dr Sam Wells, Vicar of St Martin in the Fields, Trafalgar Square, London
