Rick’s last beautifully, spoken Morning Prayer this week, where he acknowledges out faults and asks for God’s mercy in Lent. He prays for those organising our national census tomorrow, where information gathered will benefit us all. Rick reminds us in his prayers that love is at the heart of our faith – in the darkest moments love gives hope and compels us to fight against Corona Virus alongside our sisters and brothers living in poverty. Love compels us to give and act as one, our futures are bound together more tightly than ever in this pandemic; Rick considers how easily distracted we are – where we listen to the voices of this world and ignore the one who endured all. Christ suffered and was acquainted with grief, loved and despised in equal measure, understands humanity and our failings and loves us despite ourselves.
