The Summons

This morning, I listened to the words of one of my most very favorite songs often sung at Mass, The Summons.

Today, though, the words resonated more deeply with me...

possibly because of all that is going on in the world around us...

regardless of the reasons, as my children and I wear the sign of the cross in ashes on our foreheads today (Ash Wednesday) Verse 2 moved me.

Will you leave yourself behind if I but call your name?
Will you care for CRUEL and kind and never be the same?
Will you RISK the HOSTILE stare Should your life attract or scare?
Will you let me answer prayer in you and you in me?

Wishing you a most blessed Lenten Journey over these next 40-days.  May you grow closer to Christ as you walk the way of the Cross.

Even Luke is excited about his walk with Christ!
