Jesus in Jerusalem by James Tissot (Credit: Brooklyn Museum)

Each night, we wonder what the day ahead will bring. Many are finding it hard to sleep and when we do, we have vivid and unsettling dreams. I feel a lot better when I think of the morning as being infused with kindly light. We need all the kindness we can get.

Thanks to Thee ever, O gentle Christ,

That Thou has raised me freely from the black

And from the darkness of last night

To the kindly light of this day
