Sunday 14th June - Icon of the Day

Busy with very urgent jobs I forgot one also has to die


irresponsible I kept neglecting that duty or performed it perfunctorily


as from tomorrow things will be different


I’ll start dying meticulously wisely optimistically without wasting time


‘Busy with many jobs’ by Tadeusz Różewicz

In St Mary’s prayer cycle for June 2020, today we pray for those with mental health conditions who do not understand why they cannot see friends or family as before.
