During Lent Christians prepare to celebrate God’s redemption of the world in Jesus at Easter. Our first reflections remind us that God is also our creator, and they encourage us to broaden our view of Christ’s redeeming mission – a mission that the Church is called to share.
Prayer for the week
God is love, let heaven adore him;
God is love, let earth rejoice;
let creation sing before him
and exalt him with one voice.
God who laid the earth’s foundation,
God who spread the heavens above,
God who breathes through all creation:
God is love, eternal love.
Timothy Rees (1874–1939)
