Poem by Brother Richard Hendrick

This beautiful prayer poem has been written by Richard Hendrick (Brother Richard) at the time of the corona virus in response to lockdown in Ireland.

The poem calls for prayer and love. It holds to the possibility that even in the middle of this tragedy, good can come, positive action can be taken.

Though it doesn't state as much, the poem reminds me of the astonishing spiritual truth shared by Julian of Norwich and by all mystics.

"All is well and all manner of thing shall be well."

Awareness of this truth in no way diminishes the suffering and loss being experienced at this time. The poem recognises both.

The poem is by Richard Hendrick (Brother Richard), Ireland. Written March 13th 2020.

The poem is shared below both as an image and as text.

It is shared without permission, and will be removed speedily if requested by Brother Richard :-)

Many blessings for him and for all who read this.

We are in this together.

Lockdown. Beautiful, powerful Corona Virus prayer poem


Yes there is fear.
Yes there is isolation.
Yes there is panic buying.
Yes there is sickness.
Yes there is even death.

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,

by Richard Hendrick (Brother Richard) in Ireland

Prayer based on Lockdown Poem

Dear God,

We answer the call to slow down and reflect
We look at our neighbours in a new way
We wake up to a new reality
To how big we really are.
To how little control we really have.
To what really matters.
We wake up to Love.

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.

We wake to the choices we make as to how to live now.
Today, we breathe.
Behind the noise of any panic, we listen.

We know we are encompassed by your Love.
We open the windows of our soul
We sing.

We place the world in your hands and see it filled with Light.

Thank you that You are.


My thoughts on fear

At the time of posting, responses to Covid 19 seemed to veer between 'It's no big deal, don't bother making an effort and DON'T feel fear' and 'be very afraid'.

With a history of 14 years bedbound with severe illness and inadequate care, I can tell you that the instruction 'DON'T feel fear' never worked for me.

I wish I had felt more fear early on, had welcomed it and let it teach me to slow down and be kind to my body.

So feel the fear people. It's a natural human emotion which serves the purpose of allowing us to behave in new ways.

Use fear to override old habits of face touching and hand shaking and learn new habits.

And once fear has empowered you to do what you can, then, to the best of your ability,  let it go. You have no more need of it.
Find your confidence, your trust, feel the love you have for others.
You are alive. Celebrate it and live it.

Prayer re Coronavirus
Vaccine developed

Dear God,

We pray for all those in a position to research the treatment for Covid-19 virus.

We don’t need to fear.
You are bigger and mightier than a tiny viral cell.
Your name Jesus is more powerful.
You have overcome the world. We trust you.

Put the right people in the right place to find a vaccine and a cure.
Make connections that need to be made.
Guide the researchers' minds, hearts and hands.
Give them the financial reward they need to allow them to dedicate themselves to this work.
We see a clear and affordable vaccine being identified and made available quickly . 
We see celebration at the progress made
and saving of many peoples lives especially in poorer countries.
Thank you. Amen

Veronica UK

Dear Lord, pour your grace on researchers
and those in power
and grant them the spirit of generosity
so that their results and vaccine are available to all,
so that the world may share in it,
not just individual wealthy countries or profiteering individuals.
