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 nails on our Lenten cross, reminders of the violence of Jesus’ death and the agony he went through.
We remember all who face violence today,
thinking of those whose countries are at war or who are caught up in conflict.
as you suffered, so many in our world still suffer today.
Challenge us to make a difference through our actions and our prayers.
