First Sunday of Lent - Year B

This week as we enter together in our Lenten journey, I thought I would again share this poem with all of you. Over the past two years at the beginning of Lent I have shared this poem. Many of you asked if I would continue doing this. Who am I to break with tradition. So here you go and I hope it blesses all of you!


DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE?

Do you really believe that I exist?

And for you I truly care

As you sit in front of your color TV.

And relax in your easy chair?

Do you really believe that I exist?

And for you I have the time?

As you carefully read everyone else’s words

But have no time for mine

Do you really believe that I exist?

For I have so many gifts to share?

And yet you let the day just waste away

Without a word of prayer

Do you really believe that I exist?

For there’s nothing more I can do.

I care for you so much my child

I even died for you

Do you really believe at all?


Something to think about and may God richly bless you always! Happy Lent!
