Lord, it’s cold on earth because of the loneliness and distress of so many people.
Lighting a fire to warm up is a simple gesture, one that each of us is capable of…
Lord our God, help us to do this without ceasing:
In the image of Christ Jesus, burning with love for this world, teach us to warm, to listen, to console
those who are alone in their anguish and destitution.
On the threshold of this Lent, renew our hearts in the gift of ourselves,
In Jesus, your beloved son, our Master and Lord.
