    Journey to Easter

Lent and Easter 2023

The days of Lent are set aside as pilgrimage and preparation for our eventual embrace and celebration of Easter. They echo Jesus’ forty days in the wilderness. You might consider Lent as a “treasure hunt,” digging more deeply into the mystery of Christ’s life, death and resurrection; perhaps a time to reassess and reorder what is important. Travelling from Ash Wednesday to Easter and beyond, we hope the resources offered here – poems, psalms and prayers will encourage and enrich your journey towards Easter this year.

Prayer for the Journey to Easter

Artist of souls,
from the rocks of wilderness
and the places of emptying
you sculpt a people for yourself.
Help us embrace your invitation
to prayer and simplicity.
Let the discipline of these forty days
sharpen our hunger
for the feast of your friendship,
and whet our thirst
for You, the living water.
