Meditation for Friday after Ash Wednesday
Go and learn what this means, ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have come to call not the righteous but sinners.” Matthew 9:13
Make us worthy, Lord, to serve others throughout the world who live and die in poverty or hunger. Give them, through our hands, this day their daily bread, and by our understanding love, give peace and joy.
Prayer by Mother Teresa of Calcutta
