A Lenten Invitation
God of Love, open our hearts on this Lenten journey to know that death is part of life, that life seeks more life, and that the fullness of life is ahead.
Give us the spiritual energy to be attentive to our hearts, to trust the power within us to become more than what we are.
Awaken us to the freedom of love, so we can be part of the creative power of Your love.

Awaken us to know You more deeply, because to know You is to realize that the future has already arrived.
