As we continue on our Lenten journey,
may we be mindful of the gifts of this season.
May we stop, pause and reflect on the
goodness and compassion of our loving God.
May we be mindful of those in need and pray
that we can be good stewards of the gifts that we receive every day.
As this Lenten journey moves along, may we be loving,
forgiving and almsgiving individuals who are anticipating
the gifts of the coming season.
Thank you God for your love and grace in these days.
May you grow still enough to hear the stir
of a single snowflake in the air,
so that your inner silence may turn
into hushed expectation.
- Brother David Stendl-Rast, OSB
