Lent calendar prayer and reflection for 17 March - St. Patrick's day

The kingdom of God will be given to a people who will produce its fruit.

Matthew 21:33-43, 45-46
In today’s parable Jesus refers to his rejection by those who choose not to hear his message, and think they can secure their own dominion by doing away with him. He asks us to examine the values by which we choose to live our life. 

The imagery he uses of a vineyard producing grapes, and tenants who consider themselves owners rather than stewards, can also help us to understand our relationship with creation.

A prayer for courage

Lord, help me and give me courage and strength. May Jesus bless us with life for all our families and grandchildren, that we may have water. Amen.
