JUST ONE MINUTE
The three practices of Lent are prayer, fasting and almsgiving. At times we may not know how to pray. “In the same way, the Spirit too comes to the aid of our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit itself intercedes with inexpressible groanings” (Rm 8:26). This is good news for us. It is important for us to commit to a daily time of prayer, but part of entering into that relationship is a willingness to struggle with the words. To speak from the depths of our soul - in groanings, stumblings, inadequate or incomplete words. The key is to keep the communication lines open, not that the communication is "perfect."
Reflection: What is your Lenten prayer resolution? How is it going?
