Lent is the journey to Easter when we celebrate the death and resurrection of Christ – God’s gift of his only Son to free us from sin and death.
Christ’s sacrifice on the cross is the proof of how much God loves us. Like a great sponge Christ absorbed all the evil and hatred of the world.
He plunged it into the heart of God and transformed it in the fire of God’s love.
our lives are laid open before you:
rescue us from the chaos of sin
and through the death of your Son
bring us healing and make us whole
in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
