Good Word Keeper

Lent calls each of us to a change of heart and provides time and opportunity to transform the way we look at life and our “neighbor.” As you spend time with each day’s reflection a sentence or thought might inspire you enough to carry it in your heart “pocket.” The day’s scripture readings are cited at the bottom of each page for reference or further reflection. Prayer is a gift that strengthens our spirits and it allows us to put Christ first in what we do and who we are, so that we can become this Christ for others.

Let us pray for one another as we walk this Lenten journey with Christ.
