Joyful praise in Lent?
I'm not sure I always feel that.
I ask you to help me prepare to understand and embrace the paschal mystery in my life.
I don't always see the beauty and mystery of this season and often I run from the pain.
Help me to see how your saving grace and your loving touch in my life can fill me with joyful praise of the salvation you have sent to me.
