April 3, 2019

  • During this season of Lent, let us spiritually prepare for the Easter season, through prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. This is a time to deepen our spiritual life through the means of sanctification. We can do this by spending more time with Jesus especially in the Blessed Sacrament, going to confession more often, and offering up our time and treasures for the love of Christ’s sacrifice. 

                Dear Lord, I know You receive what is in my heart. Let me be inspired by Your words and by the

                actions of Your son, Jesus.  Guide me to make sacrifices this Lent in the spirit of self-denial and 

                with greater attention to You and to those around me.  Help me to believe that You will grant me this 

                because of the sacrifice You made for me.
