The Journey of Lent

We take this journey to Easter – 6 weeks to “Repent and follow the Gospel” identifying ourselves as followers of Jesus. It commenced with our being marked on Ash Wednesday and is to be a time of awakening to his presence in our minds and hearts. There is a trio of ways to guide us – prayer, self-denial and generosity. We begin with the ways we are tested hearing of the Garden of Eden and how a relationship with the Creator God was damaged and then of the ways Jesus was tempted as he spent time in the wilderness. He stands firm in the light of the tests by responding with words from the Scripture. He stands firm by prayer and fasting. It is up to us to make the time beneficial in strengthening our bond with Christ by using the spiritual exercises and becoming alive and alight.

St David Patron of Wales

His last words –
Be joyful and keep your faith and your creed. Do the little things that you have seen me do and heard about.
I will walk the path our fathers have trod before us

Guide me O thou great redeemer
Pilgrim through this barren land
I am weak but thou art mighty
Hold me with thy powerful hand
Bread of heaven Bread of heaven
Feed me till I want no more!
Feed me till I want no more!
