Taste and See: Living Love

DSC03120 charity.jpg

Direct, O Lord, we pray, the hearts of your faithful,
and in your kindness grant your servants this grace:
that, abiding in the love of you and their neighbour,
they may fulfil the whole of your commands.
Through Christ our Lord.


Prayer over the People for 3rd Sunday of Lent

The Prayer over the People offered for the conclusion of Mass yesterday, the 3rd Sunday of Lent, acheives a lovely balance of insights into God’s gracious help and our hoped for response to that help.

We ask for God’s direction and help that we might live love – for God, self, neighbour – and so fulfil God’s will. God’s will achieved in us by God’s assistance and our cooperation and deepest longing.

This is surely something worth praying and hoping for and dedicating ourselves to -for ourselves and all God’s faithful.

Happy Lent.
