Thursday, March 1 ::: Ask

To view this reading in its proper format with audio, go to https://lentreading.wordpress.com

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.  Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone?  Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent?  If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!

Matthew 7:7-11

audio : Blue In Green, Miles Davis (1959)

O God our God, grant us grace to desire You with a whole heart, so that desiring You we may seek and find You; and so finding You, may love You; and loving You, may hate those sins which separate us from You, for the sake of Jesus Christ.

Anselm of Canterbury, 12th century
