Saint Anthony of Padua said: “Extending his arms on the cross like wings, Christ embraces all who come to him sheltering then in his wounds.”
The cross beckons in the darkness of our woundedness of sin to Christ. In his wounds, at his cross we find shelter, healing and wholeness. This season of Lent let’s pray that all those struggling in life may find the peace and healing that Christ longs to provide. Together let’s surrender anew to His wounds.

His call to love he heard anew,
Surrender made that clear.
His broken heart in trust
He offered up without fear.

The tears and broken heart,
he gave in simple hope,
That Loves dawn
shine through
and brighten
others dark nights.
