Dear Friends,

Like many people I keep on thinking of the dark times we are now in, and the following keeps coming to mind:

At the end of World War 2 this prayer was found in Ravensbrück concentration camp, pinned onto the body of a dead child. I guess the prayer was written by a Jewish man or woman, someone who had experienced and witnessed not only the horrors but also the qualities mentioned. He or she had lived and grown through all of this. I find it profoundly moving.

“O Lord, remember not only the men and women of goodwill, but also those of ill will. But do not remember all the suffering they have inflicted on us; remember the fruits we have bought, thanks to this suffering – our comradeship, our loyalty, our humility, our courage, our generosity, the greatness of heart which has grown out of all this – and when they come to judgement, let all the fruits which we have borne be their forgiveness.”

In Friendship

Caroline
