Good Friday 2020

It is so odd to be at home on a Good Friday but needs must and this has provided me with much to be thankful for. Being able to do Morning Prayer via FaceTime, follow the Stations of the Cross at St Martin in the Fields, then the 2 hour liturgy of Good Friday with such deep thoughtful addresses by Rev Sam Wells, as well as attending the Good Friday at St Clements and St Peters in Rome / whilst drawing

- well I have felt thoroughly in tune with the spirit of this special day and I thank God for that. But I am mindful that for many this day will have been full of fear or grief or grindingly tiring. My love and prayers are for you and I pray that this will not always seem so dark for you. That hope comes too even though it may seem far off. Love and Blessings
