A Lent prayer

March 1, 2017

My dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

On this first day of Lent and first day of March, winter reminds us that it isn’t quite done. But we can be grateful for the sunshine. Praying that all of you will be blessed throughout these 40 days with a transformation that will draw you closer to Our Lord.

This past Sunday night, the Forgiveness Vespers were sung in preparation for Lent. This is a beautiful prayer to carry with us on our Lenten journey.

Entering into the arena of the Holy Fast,
let us make every effort to humble our flesh by abstinence.
In prayer and with tears, let us seek the Lord, our Savior,
and that we might turn from our evil deeds,
let us say to Him, “We have sinned against you, O Christ, Our God.
Save us as you saved the Ninevites of old,
and in your goodness, grant us a share in the Kingdom of Heaven.
