Pray and Wash

By now hopefully everyone is well-informed of the CDC hand washing guideline, to reduce transmission of infectious diseases. As a timer, the “Happy Birthday” tune doesn’t work for me as I have heard and sung it at many different speeds. So here is another option. Think of yourself at Mass and pray the Lord’s Prayer at the speed with which we pray together. For me it comes close to the recommended “wash” time, but just to be sure I added the prayer that follows.

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive them that trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom,
the power, and the glory, are yours
now and forever.

Amen.
