Jesus, during these days of Lent help me to see in your Cross all the crosses of the world:
the cross of people hungry for food and for love;
the cross of people dying from lack of clean water;
the cross of people sick and in need of health care;
the cross of people without shelter;
Jesus, by the sacrifice of your cross you restored hope; help me to find the strength and courage to live your mission of mercy and share love and hope with those people burdened by the weight of their cross. AMEN
