Saturday of the Fourth Week of Lent
In your gentle mercy, Lord,
guide our wayward hearts,
for we know that left to ourselves
we cannot do your will.
May our prayers awaken us to our duty in this world; to come back down the mountain and resume the radical and difficult and long laboring of following Jesus. “Listen to Him!” the entire hedge of blood, red-twig dogwoods are chanting in the canticles of dawn.
