Lent, Light, Load, & Likeness

I absolutely love “The Prayer Appointed for the Week” in the Divine Hours for this week: “Grant that I, beholding by faith the light of his countenance, may be strengthened to bear my cross, and be changed into his likeness from glory to glory; through Jesus Christ my Lord.” For me, this sums up the journey of Lent — to bask in the light of Jesus’ countenance, to carry the load of the cross into the world, and to be changed increasingly into Jesus’ likeness.

For me, this sums up the journey of Lent — to bask in the light of Jesus’ countenance, to carry the load of the cross into the world, and to be changed increasingly into Jesus’ likeness.

This is one prayer that I’m going to incorporate into my daily rhythm for Lent.
