Lenten Reflection

The Society of the Sacred Heart
“The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart.”
Romans 10:8
Standing on the Lenten temptation precipice,
both despair and gratitude teeter in our hearts.
Listening to the voices of Lent,
we hear the invitation to enter our own desert,
and to pierce through the distractions
of digital solutions into the hard drive of the heart.
We dare to illuminate the temptations
attracting us away from grace
with magnetic force.
Here, in this space, 
we listen to the voices of Lent…

Listening to the voices of Lent
