A Christmas gift from two granddaughters
is aiding me on my Lenten path this year.
They had checked my wish list on Amazon.com
and saw that my number one wish
was to have a year's subscription
to the Magnificat magazine
published by St. Anthony Messenger Press.
Having an interest in the lives of saints,
I ordered Lent with the Saints: Daily Reflections
by Greg Friedman, O.F.M.
Today's reading and suggestion...
(Reflect, then write a petition
for some special need.)
led to my composing a prayer.
Lord, I ask that my trust in you
grow and bloom
as does the cactus in the desert.
My thirst for faith in you
to be quenched alone
by your Word.
