en - First Sunday of Lent and Gospel Nonviolence


Prayer


We travel in deserts and despair as we focus on how Christ was crucified.


And is crucified in the world today.


We agree to make this journey, this pilgrimage, and to leave life as usual, business as usual, to pay attention, to be present to pain and suffering.


The journey to the Light of Easter can only go this way.


We choose to learn this hard truth, to accept the ashes, to witness the darkness, to walk the way of the cross as it happens in our world.


Let us journey together, open to the world, so we may be renewed and help bring to all the renewal of Resurrection. Amen.
