Comfort in sorrow

Lilian Barrera Ramírez, CND


Lord Jesus, you are empathy, you are compassion, you are a meaningful presence.

I do not doubt for a moment that you are moved deep inside and your heart cries

With those who today mourn the loss of a loved one to the Covid-19 pandemic.


Yes Lord, there are many families

Who suffer the pain of seeing a family member leave

in an inhumane way, because Covid patients

die alone, abandoned…


You are present to console…

Just like you did with the widow who was going to bury her only son,

You said to Martha, Lazarus’ sister

“I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live.” Jn 11, 25


Risen Lord, you are life,

You are the essential,

Everything that exists was born of you,

Goes back to you.


Life is stronger than death,

May those who have already left this world

Rejoice in your resurrection.
