Patricia Anne Christie: 3rd February 1942 - 16th September 2018

We were very sad to hear of the passing of Patricia Christie, a member of the Lewes Friends of Pestalozzi and enthusiastic supporter of Pestalozzi’s work. A celebration of Patricia’s life was held on Tuesday 9th October 2018 at St Michael’s Church in Lewes during which the following Sufi prayer was read by Patricia’s goddaughter, Kat Bruce:

Pir (master)
Inspirer of my mind,
consoler of my heart,
healer of my spirit,
Thy presence lifteth me from earth to Heaven:
Thy words flow as the sacred river:
Thy thoughts riseth as a divine spring:
Thy tender feelings waken sympathy in my heart.
Beloved Teacher, thy very being is forgiveness.
The clouds of doubt and fear are scattered
by thy piercing glance;
All ignorance vanishes in thy illuminating presence;
A new hope is born in my heart
by breathing thy peaceful atmosphere.
O inspiring guide through life’s puzzling ways,
In Thee I feel abundance of blessing.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Patricia’s family.
