House of Prayer: March-April 2020

Lent is not an event.  It is not something that happens to us.  It is at most a microcosm of what turns out to be a lifelong journey to the center of the self. 

The purpose of Lent is to confront us with ourselves in a way that’s conscious and purposeful, that enables us to deal with the rest of life well.  It is not a “penitential season.”  It is a growing season.  It requires us to determine what is worth dying for in our own lives and what it may be necessary for us to become if we really want to live.

Joan Chittister OSB        A Growing Season

As Lent begins we pray for those who have died recently, pray with the Mary Ward Family and the World. The March – April HOP 2020   En Español
