Lockdown – Our Lives Are Changing

There may be resentment, anger and frustration because so many of us have never before experienced loss of freedom, slowing down and the opportunity of looking deeply down within I think ourselves and facing up to who we really are. The reality of all that is having in our lives is slowly becoming to kick in and it is our responses and which valuable lessons we are prepared to learn from our experiences that will define us as we recover and regain a sense of normality once again.

It’s still too soon to just simply give up now because our work is not yet done. Have faith that one day soon we shall return to our everyday lives once again doing the same things, only this time, slightly differently.

I came across this beautiful poem and would like to share it with you because it’s so very poignant to what is happening to our lives today.

“Lockdown” by Brother Richard Hendrick

Lockdown

Yes there is fear.

Yes there is isolation.

Yes there is panic buying.

Yes there is sickness.

Yes there is even death.

But,

They say that in Wuhan after so many years of noise

You can hear the birds again.

They say that after just a few weeks of quiet

The sky is no longer thick with fumes

But blue and grey and clear.

They say that in the streets of Assisi

People are singing to each other

across the empty squares,

keeping their windows open

so that those who are alone

may hear the sounds of family around them.

They say that a hotel in the West of Ireland

Is offering free meals and delivery to the housebound.

Today a young woman I know

is busy spreading fliers with her number

through the neighbourhood

So that the elders may have someone to call on.

Today Churches, Synagogues, Mosques and Temples

are preparing to welcome

and shelter the homeless, the sick, the weary

All over the world people are slowing down and reflecting

All over the world people are looking at their neighbours in a new way

All over the world people are waking up to a new reality

To how big we really are.

To how little control we really have.

To what really matters.

To Love.

So we pray and we remember that

Yes there is fear. But there does not have to be hate.

Yes there is isolation. But there does not have to be loneliness.

Yes there is panic buying. But there does not have to be meanness.

Yes there is sickness. But there does not have to be disease of the soul.

Yes there is even death. But there can always be a rebirth of love.

Wake to the choices you make as to how to live now.

Today, breathe.

Listen, behind the factory noises of your panic

The birds are singing again

The sky is clearing,

Spring is coming,

And we are always encompassed by Love.

Open the windows of your soul

And though you may not be able

to touch across the empty square,

Sing.

Continued Prayers for our people in the frontlines… all doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals and staff!

“Dear friends, look at the real heroes who come to light in these days: they are not famous, rich and successful people; rather, they are those who are giving themselves in order to serve others.” – Pope Francis

Until Next Time,

Love and Light,
