A Prayer for the Season of Lent

“Lent: this means seriousness, temperance, mortification, recollection, prayer. Such is my life these days. O Jesus, I join you in spirit as you fast in the wilderness for forty days and with prayer prepare for your public life. May I learn something from you at this time, so that Easter Day may mark another step forward in the path of virtue, of union and glorification of the spirit with you.”

—Saint Pope John XXIII (Journal of a Soul)
