#LENT: A Prayer for Friday

Here’s an ancient Celtic prayer on this Lenten Friday to contemplate…

Lord Jesus Christ

“You are the peace of all things calm.
You are the place to hide from harm.
You are the light that shines in dark.
You are the heart’s eternal spark.
You are the door that’s open wide.
You are the guest who waits inside.
You are the stranger at the door.
You are the calling of the poor.
You are my Lord and with me still.
You are my love, keep me from ill.
You are the light, the truth, the way.
You are my Savior this very day.”

(Celtic Traditional Prayer)

grace, peace & prayer

      Isn’t this a good one, Debbie? It was on a St. Martin’s Celtic bookmark from the Iona community. I had not seen it before either. Blessings on your Lenten journey. ☘️🙏☘️

        It wasn’t hard enough, giving up stuff for Lent, was it? Now we’ve got this plague frightening the masses. The Chicago archdiocese even suspended Mass until further notice — thank goodness, we’re downstate and can still go.
