Prayer to Begin Lent:
Lord Jesus, you call us to a conversion of heart
during Lent, and you give us the tools to do
this through prayer, fasting and almsgiving.
When we pray, help us remember the needs of
our sisters and brothers. When we fast, help
us offer our sacrifice in union with you. When
we give, help us recognize our gifts are from
you so that we are generous with others.
May our Lenten journey enable us to
follow you more faithfully and love our
neighbor more fully. Guide us throughout
these 40 days so that we may be joined
more closely to you when we arrive at the
joyful celebration of Easter. (Adapted from: www.crsricebowl.org)
Blessings and Peace,
Bishop Christian and the Parish Staff
