    #686 Irish Franciscan Monk & Poet Richard Hendrick on Coping with The Pandemic

    #686 Irish Franciscan Monk & Poet Richard Hendrick on Coping with The Pandemic

    Brother Richard Hendrick is a Capuchin Franciscan priest-friar, living and working in Ireland. He teaches Christian meditation – and has written some beautiful poetry too, including his poem, Lockdown, which has gone viral during the current Pandemic.

    Lockdown by Brother Richard:

    Yes there is fear.



    Yes there is isolation.



    Yes there is panic buying.



    Yes there is sickness.



    Yes there is even death.



    But,



    They say that in Wuhan after so many years of noise



    You can hear the birds again.



    They say that after just a few weeks of quiet



    The sky is no longer thick with fumes



    But blue and grey and clear.



    They say that in the streets of Assisi



    People are singing to each other



    across the empty squares,



    keeping their windows open



    so that those who are alone



    may hear the sounds of family around them.



    They say that a hotel in the West of Ireland



    Is offering free meals and delivery to the housebound.



    Today a young woman I know



    is busy spreading fliers with her number



    through the neighbourhood



    So that the elders may have someone to call on.



    Today Churches, Synagogues, Mosques and Temples



    are preparing to welcome



    and shelter the homeless, the sick, the weary



    All over the world people are slowing down and reflecting



    All over the world people are looking at their neighbours in a new way



    All over the world people are waking up to a new reality



    To how big we really are.



    To how little control we really have.



    To what really matters.



    To Love.



    So we pray and we remember that



    Yes there is fear.



    But there does not have to be hate.



    Yes there is isolation.



    But there does not have to be loneliness.



    Yes there is panic buying.



    But there does not have to be meanness.



    Yes there is sickness.



    But there does not have to be disease of the soul



    Yes there is even death.



    But there can always be a rebirth of love.



    Wake to the choices you make as to how to live now.



    Today, breathe.



    Listen, behind the factory noises of your panic



    The birds are singing again



    The sky is clearing,



    Spring is coming,



    And we are always encompassed by Love.



    Open the windows of your soul



    And though you may not be able



    to touch across the empty square,



    Sing
