If I had a blog, today I would not be able to find my own words to compass the ache in my heart. I will, as I have often done, rely on the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer to be my voice:
Keep watch, dear Lord, with those who work, or watch, or weep this night,
and give your angels charge over those who sleep.
Tend the sick, Lord Christ; give rest to the weary,
bless the dying, soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted,
shield the joyous; and all for your love’s sake. Amen.
