Let us be attentive to our prayers today in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
From Mark 12 we hear:
"… they asked him which commandment is the first of all?' Jesus answered, 'The first is, "Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one; you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength." The second is this, "You shall love your neighbour as yourself." There is no other commandment greater than these.'
Let us pray:
Lord, help us to grow as close to you in love as we make our Lenten reflections. Help us to never be afraid to express our faith in our words and actions. Amen.
Surrounded by the joy of the saints us we move onward with our day in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
