Deus Ibi Est

There is much to pray for today.

Hundreds were killed this week in the southern states by storms and tornadoes. Prayers are needed for the dead and those who mourn them, as well as for the hurt and the homeless.

While in London and Rome, it is a time of great events. Prayers would be appropriate for popes, princes and the great throngs of people.

So, for this week's "YouTube clip for a peaceful weekend," below is a "new-ish" setting of the hymn "Ubi Caritas" by the 35-year-old Welsh composer Paul Mealor as it was heard Friday in Westminster Abbey.


In English:

"Where there is charity and love, there is God."

I thought it was a lovely Ubi Caritas.

There is so much to pray for and I am praying!
