And sore must be the storm -

God of all nations, open our awareness to the
suffering of communities far away. Help us to
seek knowledge and understanding of places
we might never visit. We thank you for the
mortuary and funeral home workers who
make a resting place for the neglected and
alone. Give them strength and courage for
their labor. In your name we pray. Amen.

What are some of the photographs or stories that made you more fully comprehend the global magnitude of the pandemic?

Right now we are seeing images of innocent Ukrainian civilians being killed every day. Say a prayer for their families as they bury their beloved ones. Find a way quietly to show your support for these brave Ukrainians.
