First Sunday of Lent 2022
Each year LENT has its own special grace to give each person on their journey towards Easter. This year we are faced with an extraordinary world event as well as the season of conversion. In light of the war in Ukraine we invite you to take each week’s ‘treasure’.
Psalm 91 Qui habitat
Those who dwell in the shelter of the Most High,
abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
They shall say to the Lord,
“You are our refuge and our stronghold,
our God in whom we put our trust.”
The Lord shall deliver you from
the snare of the hunter
and from the deadly pestilence.
The wings of the Lord shall cover you,
and you shall find refuge under them;
the faithfulness of God shall be a shield.
You shall not be afraid of any terror by night,
nor of the arrow that flies by day;
of the plague that stalks in the darkness,
nor of the sickness that lays waste at mid-day.
A thousand shall fall at your side
and ten thousand at your side,
but it shall not come near you.
Your eyes have only to behold
to see the reward of the wicked.
Because you have made the Lord your refuge,
and the Most High your habitation,
there shall no evil happen to you,
neither shall any plague come near your.
For the angels of God
shall have charge over you,
to keep you in all your ways.
They shall bear you in their hands,
lest you dash your foot against a stone.
“Because they are bound to me in love,
therefore, will I deliver them;
I will protect them,
because they know my name.
They shall call upon me,
and I will answer them;
I am with them in trouble;
Watch Jesus in the Wilderness (video)
Venerable Mary Ward, we place the Ukrainian people under your protection.
