The coronavirus has claimed many lives in over 200 countries of the world, in all 230,000 people have died. So this is a time of loss and grief, when many of us have lost loved ones or have friends who are bereaved. It is good to remember that death is not the end, that we believe in a glorious future, beyond our imagining. This does not take away the sorrow of loss, but gives hope. We have entrusted those who have gone before us to the love of God. And the love of God is infinite.
Let us pray for one another.
