After experiencing such unexpected success with my first Lenten rose plant, I bought several more varieties. Now, each March brings me Lenten roses that last throughout the season of Lent and for a month or two after Easter. I thank God for these small blessings and for the countless large ones too.
I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
