First Sunday of Lent ~ February 17-18, 2024

LENT

Protect me, God: for in you I take refuge.  You are my portion and cup, my life is in your hands.  I keep you ever before me, for you are my God.  You stand at my right hand; I shat not waver.  And so my heart is glad and my soul rejoices; my body also rests secure.  For you do not leave my life among the dead, or let your servant go down into the pit.  You will show me the path of life, fullness of joy in your presence, happiness forever at your right hand.  Amen.  Pope Francis
