Draw Near to God

Today’s reading from the Letter of James reminds us that Lent is on the way.

So submit yourselves to God. Resist the Devil, and he will flee from you.
Draw near to God, and God will draw near to you.
Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you of two minds.
Begin to lament, to mourn, to weep.
Let your laughter be turned into mourning and your joy into dejection.
Humble yourselves before the Lord and God will exalt you.
