Friday after Ash Wednesday

Taking the Gospel to prayer

Today is a day of abstinence. We are in the days when the bridegroom is not with us. Yes, Jesus remains in the Holy Eucharist! But Lent is our reminder that our goal is eternal union with the Lord in heaven. So today, take the first reading to prayer as well:

This, rather, is the fasting that I wish:

   releasing those bound unjustly,

   untying the thongs of the yoke;

Setting free the oppressed,

   breaking every yoke;

Sharing your bread with the hungry,

   sheltering the oppressed and the homeless;

Clothing the naked when you see them,

   and not turning your back on your own.

Then your light shall break forth like the dawn,

   and your wound shall quickly be healed;

Your vindication shall go before you,

   and the glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard.

Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer,

   you shall cry for help, and he will say: Here I am!

How will the world see our light today?
