Blessed are those who hunger and thirst

A prayer for the Third Sunday of Lent (Year C)

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled.

Living Lord, you spread a table before us,
and draw water for us from the well of salvation.
Give us the passion to embrace your invitation,
to respond whole-heartedly to your summons,
and to enter deeply into the waters of repentance.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled.          Amen.
                                                 [Matt 5:6]
