Lent Cross 2023: Week 3


On our journey through lent, may these symbols be reminders of the road Jesus took,

the road of pain and suffering, the path of self-giving love.

May they also remind us of the suffering of the world and challenge us to respond.

Today we place a money bag on our Lenten cross,

a reminder of the way in which money changed hands for Jesus’ betrayal.

We remember all who are enslaved today,

thinking of those who have lost their freedom because of other peoples’ greed.

Lord Jesus,

as you suffered , so many in our world still suffer today.

Challenge us to make a difference through our actions and our prayers.
