That is why I came—so that I might go through this hour of suffering

John 12:27

In today’s gospel we hear Jesus talking about what is going to happen to him in the weeks ahead.

He asks God to give him the strength and courage to carry on his journey, even though it will be hard.

We remember today how life can sometimes be hard, and ask God to continue to give us the strength and courage as we move through Lent towards Easter.

We also ask God to support our sisters and brothers around the world who are in challenging times.
