06 Mar [1st Wed] Ash Wed (Ps 23:1) by Paula Parmelee

Ash-Wednesday-crossThe Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I lack. ~ Ps 23:1
Reflection:  The Lenten season. 40 days. A time of healing. A time of spiritual growth. Purification. Cleansing.  Forgiveness. Jesus offers His guiding hand. His light shines through our valley of tears. He beckons. He invites each to come follow Him. His eternal Word breaks forth and dispels the darkness. He is the Word.  I accept.  I join my suffering to His Holy Cross, I unite, become one. Jesus, I trust in You. I now offer my own hand, I reach out, I grasp the one in need, the abortion vulnerable; the brokenhearted, the forgotten; the unloved. I shine Your light, Lord, out into the sadness, to the lost, to those without hope; and I pray for all to know Your love.
Challenge:  Pray, fast and offer alms to those who have suffered from, or are related to someone who has suffered the loss of a child by abortion.  Wholeheartedly devote yourself to the glory of God and to the service of your neighbor. Be the one.
