Let it be

March 25, 2020

It’s a sure bet that when Paul McCartney released the song “Let It Be” on May 8, 1970, he had no Idea it would provide the perfect advice as we all try to navigate life during the Covid-19 crisis.

Stop and listen to his beautiful words, “When I find myself in times of trouble, mother Mary comes to me, speaking words of wisdom,” Let it be,”  The Mary in his song is his mother. Yet, as I do all I can do to avoid being overwhelmed with fear, I can hear our Blessed Mother Mary’s soft voice telling me to “Let it be, trust in the Lord.”  Her words comfort me and lead me to one of my favorite prayers.

Let Go and Let God

Today I will let go and let God take charge of this life of mine.

Now in the dark corners of my soul, His light is beginning to shine.

All of the cares and worries that I have carried around for so long,

He has lifted them from my shoulders, and filled my heart with love.

Problems that were overwhelming suddenly seem very small,

and come what may, starting today, I know I can handle them all.

If you are troubled, Let Go and Let God take charge of your life for you, and

however dark life’s shadows seem, His light will come shining through.

So once again today, having found myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary came to me speaking words of wisdom, “Let it be.”
