God… be there. Be present. Surround little Clara… just… God… be there.
(from Common Prayer: a Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals)
Peace be here in the Name of the King of life;
The peace of Christ above all peace,
The Lord’s blessing over you.
They say nothing is given birth without pain.
I have a secret joy in Thee, my God,
For, if thou art my Father,
Thou art my Mother too,
And of Thy tenderness, healing and patience
There is no end at all.
I pray for Clara.
Clara, may the joy and peace of heaven
be with you.
The Lord bless you.
