An Evening Prayer
O God,
in whom we live and move
and have our being,

O Love,
who embraced our sorrows
and took away our sins on the cross,

we have come to you today,
sometimes trusting,
sometimes fearful,

sometimes falling,
sometimes rejoicing.

O God, O Love,
as we spend these evening hours,
draw us to your loving heart,

where our fears may be quieted
and our tears wiped away,

and where we, with your Son Jesus Christ
may embrace the sorrows of the world
and answer your call to forgive,
in your most merciful heart.

Amen.

It's about Love

https://www.amazon.com/That-God-May-All-Christian/dp/0578598183/The season of Lent is about love.

We might be eager to reach the more obvious celebration of Easter, but we can well say that Lent — indeed the whole liturgical year — is about love, because the deepest meaning of our lives is God's love for us.

"And I saw full surely that before God made us He loved us; which love was never slacked, nor ever shall be. And in this love He hath done all His works; and in this love He hath made all things profitable to us; and in this love our life is everlasting. In our making we had beginning; but the love wherein He made us was in Him from without beginning: in which love we have our beginning. And all this shall we see in God, without end."

- Julian of Norwich, "Love Was Our Lord's Meaning,"
Revelations of Divine Love
