Holy God, You who have been for all ages, You are our eternal God.
You are immortal while our humanity is fragile.
The years pass quickly. Our lives are over in a breath it seems!
We were formed from dust; and unto dust we shall return
when you call us home.
As we live our lives, may we feel your presence,
may we be touched by your hope; and may we reflect your love as we begin our Lenten journey this week.
Teach us to turn away from sin and be faithful to the Gospel.
