Last Friday night at Stations of the Cross , language out of the preparatory prayer for our walk with Jesus to his death leapt out at me. "Pardon me, my God, and permit me to accompany Thee on this journey. Thou goest to die for love of me; I wish also, my beloved Redeemer, to die for love of Thee."
Do we have the love and courage to accept his challenge to "pick up our Cross and carry it"? Can we walk, through accepting his grace, even for the short period of time of Lent, a walk of repentance and change? Can we walk to Good Friday?
