Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Lenten Reflections: Third Sunday of Lent

On Sundays during Lent, we invite you to reflect and respond to the weekly prayer and action from our Lenten Prayers for Hungry People resource.

Lectionary readings (from the Revised Common Lectionary):

Exodus 20:1-17
Psalm 19
1 Corinthians 1:18-25
John 2:13-22

O Christ, you enable us to worship God with our entire lives. Grant us the courage to expose greed and injustice in our world. Embolden us as we urge our nation’s leaders to change the conditions that allow hunger to persist. Amen.

The most severe drought in 60 years has brought about widespread famine in the Horn of Africa. Contact Catholic Relief Services, Church World Service, Lutheran World Relief, or another church agency to find out about innovative measures to provide water for irrigating crops and safe drinking water for villages.
