Even, and perhaps especially, in times like these, we’re reminded that we have Good News to proclaim, indeed, that we are to be that Good News for one another and for the world. Through understanding and compassion, encouragement and attentiveness, generosity and mercy, we make the world a better place for those around us. We friars keep all of you in prayer and we say with Saint Augustine:

Watch, O Lord, with those who wake,

or watch or weep tonight,

and give your angels and saints

charge over those who sleep.

Tend your sick ones, O Lord Christ.

Rest your weary ones.

Bless your dying ones.

Soothe your suffering ones. 

Pity your afflicted ones. 

Shield your joyous ones

and all for your love’s sake. Amen.

   – Saint Augustine
