Genesis 17.1-7, 17.15-16; 22.24-32; Romans 4.13-25; Mark 8.31-38
Save your life!

"Those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it." Mark 8. 35

Holy Hermit Richard Rolle De Hampole:

“What is love but the transforming of the desire into the loved thing itself? Every lover is assimilated to his or her beloved. Love makes the loving one, like what he or she loves.” ~ Chapter 17 of The Fire of Love.

Prayer adapted from Pray as you go - App - Lent closing prayer

Let us pray,
God, you have given all to us, 
to you Lord, we return it.
Everything is yours
Do with it as you will.
Give us only your love and your grace.
That is enough for us.
