“Return to me with your whole heart, with fasting, and weeping, and mourning” (Joel 2:12).
Lent is a four-legged stool of spirituality:
• The season for repairing our relationship with our Creator through prayer
• An opportunity to grow in perseverance and patience by embracing fasting
• A moment to share with profound gratitude from our well of blessings
• A chance to be born anew in the waters of consolation and conversion
Lent is the spiritual return home of the prodigal child to the warm-forgiving embrace of merciful love.
O Lord, thanks for the gift of Lent, a time of spiritual renewal. We humbly pray for joy, courage, and strength during the journey ahead.
Peace and Goodness
