I was saying Mass this morning at 10.00, our usual time, imagining that you were all there. At the consecration the only response in the quiet was the sound of the birds outside. Makes the prayer at the offertory to the God of all creation seem even more relevant. The usual whirl (for Kendal that is) of traffic round our block has dropped off making it far more peaceful. I am sure I heard a woodpecker this morning. I think the rest of creation is getting a break while we are all indoors.
