Saint John of God

Matthew 9:14-15

Lord God, you who came and lived among us, you who showed us how to live and what to value in life, give us your Spirit that we might make this Lent what you want, not what we want. Help us to look at the world with the eyes of faith and to see more clearly where we are called to be your hands of healing, your arms for hugging, your words for comfort, and your ears for deep listening. With your help we can once again bring you to a waiting world.
