After darkness, there always comes light

Fr Paddy Byrne

DESPITE the confinement and lockdown, not to mention the coroanvirus, we have enjoyed great weather this spring. Nature and the environment has offered us all a sense of hope and encouragement despite the most challenging of times we live in. Nature seems to whisper ‘Trust … this, too, will pass’.

The ***Benedictus*** from ***Morning Prayer*** concludes with the words: ‘He will give light to those in darkness, those who dwell in the shadow of death and guide us in the way of peace.’

How we need those few words to speak to us now in the difficult days that it is our lot to experience.
