“No clouds of this mortal life…”

Just as an addendum to yesterday’s post, my mother in law sent me this prayer today. It’s the Collect (from the Anglican Book of Common Prayer) for her church’s service next Sunday. It’s perfectly fitting:

Most loving Father, whose will it is for us to give thanks for all things, to fear nothing but the loss of you, and to cast all our care on you who care for us: Preserve us from faithless fears and worldly anxieties, that no clouds of this mortal life may hide from us the light of that love which is immortal, and which you have manifested to us in your Son Jesus Christ our Lord; who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

That no clouds of this mortal life may hide us from the light…

So good. (Thanks Basia.) And happy weekend everyone!
