5th Sunday of Lent – March 18 , 2018

Almighty and Merciful God,
Since the beginning of time you have shown your love towards all humanity. Help us to see, through the eyes of faith, that it is we in our unbelief who turn away from you who is ever loving and merciful. You loved us so much that you sent your Son, Jesus Christ, to save us from Satan’s power and lead us back to you. We come before you in this penitential season of Lent to ask you to fill us with your grace, so we may grow our gift of faith proclaiming that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior. We ask these things through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever.
