Prayers of the faithful Priest:  Our loving God looks on us with compassion and comes in Lent to deliver us and set us free.  We pray to God with hope. May we take Lent seriously, as a God-given opportunity to repent, and not take our faith for granted.   Lord, hear us. The Lord created us to bear fruit - may each person discover their gifts and the difference they can make in the world. Lord hear us. May Lent be a time for listening to God; may we receive a new insight into who Jesus is.  Lord, hear us. May Lent be a time for rediscovering what really matters, and letting go of the false gods that rule our lives.  Lord,  hear us. We pray for all who have died. May the Lord bring them to the promised land, where they will know only love and joy. Lord, hear us. Priest:  In our prayers we bless the Lord, who forgives us and heals us and frees us, and who crowns us with love and      compassion.  Glory be to The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit, Amen.

Pope Francis reminds us that sin is the root of all evil, it ‘disrupts our communion with God, with others and with creation itself, to which we are linked in a particular way by our body. This rupture of communion with God, likewise undermines our harmonious relationship with the environment in which we are all called to live, so that the garden has become a wilderness.’ This, he writes, is not the purpose willed for us by the Creator.  ‘Once God’s law, the law of love, is forsaken, then the law of the strong over the weak takes over. It leads to the exploitation of creation, both persons and the environment, due to that insatiable covetousness which sees every desire as a right and sooner or later destroys all those in its grip.’ However, as Jesus shows us through the parable in today’s Gospel reading, we all need opportunity, time and space, for conversion. Jesus gives us that opportunity.   Let Lent be a moment of conversion.
