Lauds in Lent

Lent at Lauds – Short Lesson on Mondays before Palm Sunday

You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself. Now therefore, if you will obey my voice and keep my covenant, you shall be my own possession among all peoples; for all the earth is mine, and you shall be to me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.

~Exodus 19:4-6
