The First Scrutiny: The Third Sunday of Lent, March 24, 2019

Response: Christ in me, arise

 

From the barrenness of self-pity and apathy…

From the barrenness of self-loathing and inner pain…

From the barrenness of self-sufficiency and mistrust…

From the barrenness of heartache and loneliness…

 

From the barrenness of jealousy and resentment…

From the barrenness of bitterness and confusion…

From the barrenness of wrongdoing and insult…

From the barrenness of rudeness and disrespect…

 

From the barrenness of slander and scandal…

From the barrenness of guilt and shame…

From the barrenness of disgrace and ruin…

From the barrenness of fear and isolation…

 

From the barrenness of sin and division…

From the barrenness of pride and envy…

From the barrenness of malice and greed…

From the barrenness of alcohol addiction and self-satisfaction…

 

From the barrenness of indifference and impatience…

From the barrenness of consumerism and materialism…

From the barrenness of sex addiction and instant gratification…

From the barrenness of mistrust and empty love…

 

And from all evil…

And from all evil…

And from all evil…
