While walking these days of Lent I pray you nudge me to be present to you and your way.
These 40 days of change, morphing and mending aim to help me celebrate Easter with a new enthusiasm.
Let me take these days seriously.
Help me connect with you more intently in prayer, fasting and almsgiving.
The way of the cross and the stations I walk remind me of the suffering Jesus suffered to show each of us how to give, forgive, and live life fully in you.
As I near the three great days of the Triduum, Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday, I am reminded of this retreat for all believers.
Help me to hold close these days.
Lead me on with you.
I need to change as you invite followers to do so daily.
With help from Mary, Mother of God, mother of the Church, I pray.
