Lent: Prayer – Mark 11:1-11 – Carrie Dean
Lent is a special season in the Christian year that begins with Ash Wednesday and ends with Easter. Lent is a time of year where we prepare ourselves for the joy of Easter by clearing out space in our lives and our hearts for God to work. It is a call to weep for what we could have been and are not. Lent is a space to grieve for what we should have done, but didn’t do. Lent is the opportunity to change what we ought to change but have not changed.
Lent is about becoming, doing and changing whatever it is that holds us back from being completely open to God. Lent is an invitation to die…so that we can begin really living. (This series description was adapted from the writings of Sister Joan Chittister, OSB)
