Este próximo fin de semana, viernes, sábado y domingo, el ultimo fin de semana de mayo, nos uniremos con personas de todos los credos, cristianos, musulmanes, judíos y gente de buena voluntad para guardar un tiempo de duelo. Para hacer duelo por los que han muerto de COVID-19, parea orar por ellos y por sus seres queridos, para orar por todos los que están enfermos de cualquier dolencia o afección, para orar por toda la familia humana.Es un fin de semana de duelo, de duelo colectivo y nacional, ecuménico e interreligioso. Y nos reuniremos con hermanos y hermanas que oran a Dios de diferentes maneras, pero que comparten con todos nosotros una humanidad común creada por un solo creador. Este fin de semana nos uniremos a ellos y al hacerlo les invitamos a participar de esa oración en sus congregaciones y personalmente. Pero quería compartir con ustedes una oración que fue compuesta para este fin de semana, compuesta juntamente por luteranos y episcopales, para la fiesta de Pentecostés en medio de esta pandemia.Dios de todo poder y amor,te damos gracias por tu constante presenciay por la esperanza que brindas en tiempos de incertidumbre y de necesidad.Envía tu Espíritu Santo a encender en nosotros tu fuego santo.Revívenos para vivir como cuerpo de Cristo en el mundo:un pueblo que ora, adora, aprende,parte el pan, comparte la vida, atiende a sus prójimos,es portador de buenas nuevas, busca la justicia, descansa y crece en el Espíritu.Dondequiera y de cualquier manera que nos reunamos,únenos en oración comunitaria y envíanos en una misión común,que nosotros y toda la creación podamos ser restaurados y renovados,mediante Jesucristo nuestro Señor. Amén.Dios les ama. Dios les bendiga. Y que Dios nos sostenga a todos, a toda la familia humana, en esas todopoderosas manos de amor.

To mourn those who have died from COVID-19, to pray for them and for their loved ones, to pray for all who are sick of any disease or condition, to pray for the entire human family.It is a weekend of grieving, of collective and national grieving ecumenical and interfaith. And we will join together with brothers and sisters and siblings, who pray to God in different ways, but who share with us all a common humanity created by one creator. This weekend we join with them, and as we do so I would invite you to join in that prayer in your congregations and personally. But I wanted to share with you a prayer that was composed for this weekend, jointly composed by Lutherans and Episcopalians, for the feast of Pentecost in the midst of pandemic.God of all power and love,we give thanks for your unfailing presenceand the hope you provide in times of uncertainty and loss.Send your Holy Spirit to enkindle in us your holy fire.Revive us to live as Christ’s body in the world:a people who pray, worship, learn,break bread, share life, heal neighbors,bear good news, seek justice, rest and grow in the Spirit.Wherever and however we gather,unite us in common prayer and send us in common mission,that we and the whole creation might be restored and renewed,through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.God love you. God bless you. And may God hold us all, the entire human family in those almighty hands of love.Hábitos de gracia, 29 de mayo de 2020: una invitación para ti, del obispo primado Curry Presiding Bishop Michael Curry In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Tags Featured Events Rector Bath, NC Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Habits of Grace: Pray for the entire human family Associate Rector Columbus, GA Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Submit an Event Listing New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Rector Albany, NY Rector Pittsburgh, PA Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Rector Smithfield, NC Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector Belleville, IL Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Rector Tampa, FL Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NYlast_img
