Friday, third week of Lent

March 13, 2015

JMJ

Blessed Friday!

Entrance Antiphon:
Among the gods there is none like You, O Lord,
for You are great and do marvelous deeds; You alone are God.

Collect:
Pour out Your grace into our hearts, we pray, O Lord,
that we may be constantly drawn away from unruly desires
and obey by Your own gift the heavenly teaching You give us.
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.

Readings:
Hosea 14: 2-10 (if we return to God, He will save us)
Psalm 81:6-11, 14, 17 “I am the Lord, your God: hear My voice”
+Mark 12:28-34 (love of God and neighbor are the greatest commandments)

I have collapsed
from guilt.

There is no point
in going on
the way I’ve been.
The spiral
just keeps going down.
My heart’s not in it
anymore.

It shouldn’t be.

I’m made for more–
to cast my eyes
above the skies,
to raise my heart
eternally,
enraptured by
divinity
and finding in
humanity
the image of
the King.

Do I look up when I’ve collapsed from guilt?
Do I believe that I’ve been made for more than this?
