Day by Day Through Lent: Day Seventeen


"Those who drink of the water I will give will never be thirsty!"

Today is our parish day of prayer. The Blessed Sacrament has been exposed on the altar and the church remains open for prayer throughout the day.

A brief Benediction service will take place at 6:00 PM.

A prayer for the day:

Parched Hearts

Merciful God,

you are the wellspring of all life,

look upon your people who,

with stony hearts,

find themselves grumbling

in the desert of sin.

May your love strike our parched hearts

and, like the woman at the well and the Israelites in the desert,

fill them with your grace

so we may go forth telling others of your mighty deeds.

Keep us mindful of your presence

and help us hear your voice,

which calls us from sin

to the cleansing waters of Baptism.

May your Son, Jesus, quench our thirst

and soften our hardened hearts,

so that transformed by grace, we may never thirst again.

Amen.
