Litany for the Beginning of Lent/Advent

Here’s a litany for the start of the Lenten (or Advent) season.  It comes from the Rex A.E. Hunt website.

A Litany for Lent/Advent

Jesus invites us to a way of celebration,
meeting and feasting with the humble and poor.
Let us walk his way with joy.

Jesus beckons us to a way of risk,
letting go of our security.
Let us walk his way with joy.

Jesus challenges us to listen to the voices
of those who have nothing to lose.
Let us walk his way with joy.

Jesus points us to a way of self-giving,
where power and status are overturned.
Let us walk his way with joy.

Jesus calls us to follow the way of the cross,
where despair is transformed
by the promise of new life.
Let us walk his way with joy.
