As we begin this season of Lent, our desire for peace based on being in right relationship with God, ourselves, our neighbors and all creation, is the gift that Jesus came to bring. Yet, our personal conflicts, those in our families, neighborhoods, country and between nations, continue to plague our daily lives. In Jesus, we are reminded that there is hope in the midst of suffering; there is hope in the Resurrection.
Lent offers us a time to pause and examine our lives; we set aside time for reflection, repentance and renewal. We invite you to join the Presentation Sisters as we journey together, remembering in prayer those who are suffering, those affected by hardship and those who have been displaced, both in our communities and around the world. By turning to God and reflecting on the teachings of Christ in Scripture, we learn Jesus’ mission was to reveal the Father’s love for us.
As we ponder this gift of love, may we be inspired to bring hope to those most in need. Together, let us be the change in our world, reaching out to provide hope and love to our sisters and brothers.
Each day in Eucharistic Adoration our Sisters pray for you. We encourage you to send us your prayer intentions on the enclosed envelope, which we will include in our daily Eucharist and in our prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. We invite you to join us in praying for hope, peace and justice throughout the world as together, we walk with Jesus through His Holy Passion to the Resurrection.
