Pray Today: 
Lord, in the world’s violence and despair, it is easy to lose sight of your truth, beauty and goodness. Help me to recognize you in the courtesies of strangers, in Spring’s new growth and in your Spirit’s stirrings in my heart.

Today Pray: 
For artists, writers, architects and all who work to make the world beautiful.

Conclude Your Prayer With: 
Lord, may my Lenten practices increase my love for you and deepen my confidence in the great love you have for me.

Daily Scripture Reflection:
“While still more people gathered in the crowd, he said to them, ‘This generation is an evil generation; it seeks a sign, but no sign will be given it, except the sign of Jonah. Just as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites, so will the Son of Man be to this generation.’” –Luke 11:29-30
