This well-known prayer of St Teresa of Avila is particularly suited to a time of pandemic: ‘Let nothing disturb you, Let nothing frighten you, All things are passing away: God never changes. Patience obtains all things. Whoever has God lacks nothing; God alone suffices’.

God never changes … God alone suffices … Let us take these words to heart and pray this prayer for our own intentions and for any whom we know to be in need.

May God bless you this day.
