Fifth Sunday OF Lent
you created us out of the dust of the earth
and breathed into us the breath of life.
By your hand we live and to your hands we return when all our days are done.
Grant that the awareness of our mortality may lead us not to fear, but to faith.
In our weakness teach us to look to you for strength,
in our failures to turn to you and find forgiveness,
and in our dying to await the gift of everlasting life;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

You cannot prevent the birds of sorrow from flying over your head. But you can prevent them from building nests in your hair.
Winter is a lesson about the fine art of loss and growth. Its lesson is clear; there is only one way out of the struggle, and that is by going into its darkness, waiting for the light, and being open to new growth.
Sr. Joan Chittister
