A LENTEN PRAYER FOR SPIRITUAL COMMUNION
As I journey through these 40 days
and meditate on Your sacrificial love for us all
I entrust my ways to Your mercy,
a mercy that seeks the healing of my heart,
and is loving me to the hidden wholeness
found only in You.
I love You, and want to grow ever closer to you.
I want to receive You into my soul.
I long to receive you at the table of the Eucharist,
where I believe you are truly present in the most holy sacrament.
But since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
come spiritually into my heart, where
I embrace You and I unite myself wholly to You.
Never let me to be separated from You.
Keep me close in your Sacred Heart.
Jesus, I trust in you.

“Let us entrust to her intercession the daily prayer for peace, especially in places where the senseless logic of violence is most ferocious; so that all people may be convinced that in this world we must help each other, as brothers and sisters, to build the civilization of love."

Sibling rivalry of biblical proportions
The Parable of the Prodigal Son could as easily be called the Parable of the Bitter Brother. The story might have ended with the celebration at the return of the repentant prodigal. But instead we are left to ponder the feelings of the “good son,” the obedient one who followed all the rules but never got a party thrown in his honor. It’s a very human story, reenacted in nearly every family in one form or another. “Mother always liked you best.” “You were Dad’s favorite.” “All we ever did was bail you out of trouble.” Will the bitter brother in the gospel story reconcile? Has bitterness or division in your own family been reconciled? Consider being the reconciler who brings it about.
TODAY'S READINGS: Micah 7:14-15, 18-20 Luke 15:1-3, 11-32. “Look, all these years I served you and not once did I disobey your orders yet you never gave me even a young goat to feast on with my friends.”

‘My son, you are here with me always;
everything I have is yours.
But now we must celebrate and rejoice,
because your brother was dead and has come to life again;
he was lost and has been found.’”

LENTEN WEEKDAY; DAY OF ABSTINENCE
Pray for besieged people everywhere
Prayer is our life with God. Sometimes we carve out a particular time during the day, and sometimes there are specific words, images, or experiences that help us be more aware of or express our relationship with God. And so of course during Lent prayer is one of the pillars, along with fasting and almsgiving, that help us turn to God. On today’s 2021 World Day of Prayer, an ecumenical observance, we are invited to “Build on a strong foundation.” This theme comes from the women of Vanuatu, an island hit by Cyclone Harold in 2020. Despite the perils they faced—and we've all faced in a year of pandemic—the message of today's prayer is one of confidence in God's steadfastness and the rock of faith. Unite in prayer for healing and recovery.
Today's readings: Genesis 37:3-4, 12-13a, 17b-28a; Matthew 21:33-43, 45-46. “The kingdom of God will be . . . given to a people that will produce its fruit.” #takefiveforfaith ... See MoreSee Less
