Tuesday, first week of Lent
Tomorrow we begin the spring Ember Days!
You can read more about them here.
O Lord, You have been our refuge, from generation to generation;
from age to age, You are.
Look upon Your family, Lord,
that, through the chastening effects of bodily discipline,
our minds may be radiant in Your Presence
with the strength of our yearning for You.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever. Amen.
Isaiah 55:10-11 (God’s word will not return void)
Psalm 34:4-7, 16-19 “From all their distress God rescues the just”
+Matthew 6:7-15 (Jesus gives us the “Our Father”)
Not many words
but one Word
do I need
It is the single Word
This Word has fallen
like the rain
that sinks into
the thirsting ground
to make me pregnant
with the life
of the divine!
This is the Word
I must bring forth
and offer back
by the Son of God.
Do I take in God’s Word like the ground soaks in the rain?
Does reading Sacred Scripture make me pregnant with Jesus?
