Thank you so much for these messages, I have found them so inspiring, I have never understood what LENT is all about I am not Catholic, and it has been a great time of learning for me and examination of where I am and a great reminder that my relationship with God is the most important thing to be of concern, and everything should flow from this. Thank you so much

I chose to send and share your wonderful lenten messages that i receive every morning after i have listened to them with my adult children
I pray they will choose to listen to the messages daily and to allow God into their lives and return to church and allow more of their time for God…I know I can’t live without God in my life.

This allowing of God’s will is the hardest thing that I am trying to do. It scares me but I have asked that I can conform to His will

I need prayers today to keep the Love growing in our marriage if it’s the Will of God

Carmelle

Keep praying earnestly, don’t give up hope. I’ve been a widow for five years, we were married fifty years. It was no bed of roses, at times pretty rocky but I prayed asking for strength and guidance, I prayed for my husband that he convert and change his ways. Others were praying for us. During the latter part of our marriage, God blessed us and our marriage. My husband converted and became the loving man I married. I thank God every day. The rough years made us stronger, we both learned from our mistakes. Every day, I pray for his… Read more »

Thank you Bruce for this timely message! Yes it is difficult to descern what is God’s Will for our lives, especially if what we desire ways heavy on our hearts! Which makes it that much more confusing if we may wonder if God might have placed that burden on our hearts to begin with. How do we know Bruce? By way of doors opening or shutting? By way of the Holy Scriptures? By dreams? By confirmation spoken through another? Thank you Bruce for suggesting to us to send our prayer requests to the address mentioned or by the Prayer Wall.… Read more »

Hi Lavinia, I am a Team Member and I have a couple of suggestions to try.
You could restart your computer or device.
You could try a different browser – google, firefox, yahoo, safari – and type in the website: https://BruceDownes.org and then click on the box that says Lent 2021 Daily Devotional. The videos are updated there every day.

Let me know how you go and I would love to help you connect.

Let go and let God is often very difficult to put into practice. My daughter is on a self-destructive path and takes no comment or motivation from me or her sister The pattern is beginning to show in her 8yr old daughter too. We have ‘enabled’ her too long by being there for her but have reached the end of our tether, yet do what we can because we don’t want the child to be disadvantaged or hurt. I do pray for God’s will in this but it is so difficult to watch and actually be helpless. Tough love is… Read more »

✝️ As children bring their broken toys with tears, for us to mend, I brought my broken dreams to God, because He was my friend. But then, instead of leaving Him in peace to work alone, I hung around and tried to help in ways that were my own.
At last I snatched them back and cried, ‘How can you be so slow?’
‘My child’ said He, ‘What could I do?…You never did let go.’

🙏You are in my prayers.

Has been comforting but I feel that I’m still trying to

Insightful. This is really a time of total reflection and submission to God’s will. Our greatest challenge is rooted on the pressures that comes from different areas of our lives. We pray for wisdom to choose rightly and be able to consistently overcome temptations whenever it comes. God bless you and thanks for sharing

Dear Bruce, you wife and the rest of your family. Thank you so much for leading us beautifully in this season of Lent by telling different stories, giving some examples and it brings me a lot of inspiration to my life. I do like your direct, simple, powerful and authentic talks because I can reflect on it at my own time. May God bless you, your family and staff, strengthen, guide you and be with you always… Today’s world needs trustworthy witnesses of proclaiming the Good News and you are. United in our prayers and I’m proud of your witnessing… Read more »

Thank you for what you are doing. I feel I am having the best Lent I have had in a long time. I am praying for my grandson who has several issues due to choices his parents made. He is struggling with several things and I’m praying that it is God’s will to help him because I am putting my trust in God’s will and not mine. Thank you again and may God bless you.🙏🙏

I don’t remember how I came across Bruce Downes and this wonderful Catholic Ministry but I’m so glad I did. Every Lent I sign up for resources galore…many that get quickly abandoned because they weren’t a good fit for me. But Bruce is bringing Lent and it’s potential meaning in my life alive in ways few others have been able to do. I do know God directed me to be part of this community. Thanks to all of you involved in this ministry!
