Lent Reflection

Since the time of early Christianity, there have been forms

of prayer that use breathing as a cadence for prayer. The Jesus

Prayer and the Rosary, along with various forms of contemplative

prayer, are all variations of this type of prayer. The real prayer

behind all of these methods is the prayer of surrender: “Into

your hands I commend my spirit.” This was the prayer that Jesus

prayed to the Father from the cross.

Lent Reflection

The greatest example of forgiveness is that of Jesus, who from the

cross forgave those who put him there: “Father, forgive them for

they know not what they are doing.” Who is the “them” to which

Jesus was referring? The “them” is us.
