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.
