Night Has Come


I believe in the sun, even when it is not shining.

I believe in God, even when He is silent.

I believe in love, even when it is not apparent.

(Anonymous Jew, World War II)

“When you are so full of sorrow

that you can’t walk, can’t cry anymore,

think about the green foliage that sparkles after

the rain. When the daylight exhausts you, when

you hope a final night will cover the world,

think about the awakening of a young child.”

(©️Omar Khayyam, from: “The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam”)

Night signifies that which comes upon us

and takes us out of our own control;

it announces that as the place of resurrection.

A God who heals in darkness—

this is John’s word of hope in a destabilised world.

(Father Iain Matthew: The Impact of God: Soundings from St John of The Cross)


Praying for world peace, and for the relief of suffering caused by wars happening all over the world today: Ukraine, Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, Mali, Somalia, Libya, Myanmar, Tigray, and other areas experiencing violence and conflict. Welcome all refugees equally.
