Prayer for today – a reflection on Easter Sunday

From the waters of the River Jordan to the baptismal waters of the Easter Sunday service, we have traversed the period of Lent once again. We have journeyed with Jesus from the dry wasteland—Jesus’s 40 days in the wilderness, where he faced hunger, thirst and temptation—to his glorious triumph over shame and death—the Resurrection.

Prayer for today - a reflection on Palm Sunday

Washing one another’s feet, feeding the hungry, clothing the naked—here is the core of the sacrifice and the sacrament that Jesus modeled for all who would follow him. In the words of Richard of Chichister:

Merciful Friend, Brother, and Redeemer,
let me know you more clearly,
love you more dearly,
and follow you more nearly,
day by day.

Prayer for today - a reflection on the fifth week of Lent

Lent is a time for us to think seriously about who Jesus is and to renew our faith. We go deep inside, into the very depth of our souls, in order to begin our spiritual life all over again. Jesus supports us as we go about our busy, hectic lives. He is there when we are working and so busy that we are not even aware he is with us. Then, in the quiet of the end of day, we know Jesus has been with us every minute. Then, at the end of life, we know that he awaits us with shelter, rest and the peace that passes understanding.
