Oh Lord, you who entrusted your mother to the care of your beloved disciple and who promised not to leave us as orphans but instead to provide us your very own body and the care and comfort of your Spirit, be with all who feel afraid and alone this day. Care for the least of these in our community and grace us to be your Body in word and in deed, bringing your word of peace to the fearful and the friendless. We pray this so that we might behold your glory and praise your lovingkindess, in the name of the Shepherd who walks with us through darkest valley. Amen.
