Meditation for the Second Sunday in Lent
Jesus called the crowd with his disciples, and said to them, “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.” Mark 8:34
Blessed sister, holy mother, spirit of the fountain, spirit of the garden, suffer us not to mock ourselves with falsehood. Teach us to care and not to care. Teach us to sit still, even among these rocks. Our peace in his will. And even among these rocks Sister, Mother, and spirit of the river, spirit of the sea. Suffer me not to be separated and let my cry come unto Thee.
