Lent 2017: Liturgy of the Palms


Artist of souls,
you sculpted a people for yourself
out of the rocks of wilderness and fasting.
Help us as we take up your invitation to prayer and simplicity,
that the discipline of these forty days
may sharpen our hunger for the feast of your holy friendship,
and whet our thirst for the living water you offer
through Jesus Christ. Amen.¹


And what more, really, is there to say?


If you are interested in today’s Lectionary readings here they are all in one place. And here they are on their own:

Psalm 118:1-2, 19-29

Matthew 21:1-11





The next Lent Post will be … Next Lent! (God willing.)

In the mean time, may the JOY of Lent stay with you! 😉


And a very blessed Palm Sunday to you!

Be well.
