Sonnets to enhance the Lectionary
Introduction to the Gospel for Lent
My Heart is Ready
My heart is ready, Yes! My heart is ready!
like a desert I am parched. My soul of sand
soaks up the rain at once is dry again, and
the inner fount of life is rank and deadly.
In such abysmal straits, remind the self
that we are loved, for all our self-despair;
that Jesus Christ has sought us out, that care
will open up the inner streams of health.
Godís love is real and Godís affection never spent.
So, be watered, tended; be refreshed, this Lent.
[Year B - Ash Wednesday]
