Fontgombault Sermon for Ash Wednesday: Time for the Works of Mercy! RORATE CÆLI - February 10, 2016 ... Fontgombault (Fontgombault, February 10, 2016) Dear Brothers and Sisters, My dearly beloved Sons: "The season of Lent during this Jubilee Year should also be lived more intensely as a privileged moment to celebrate and experience God's mercy." (Pope Francis, Misericordiæ vultus, n. 17) Such is the wish that Pope Francis has expressed in the Bull of Indiction of the Jubilee of Mercy. Experiencing God's mercy entails that we should accept ...http://rorate-caeli.blogspot.com/2016/02/fontgombault-sermon-for-ash-wednesday.html

Mardi Gras Prayer HAPPY CATHOLIC* - February 9, 2016 It is good for me to have this reminder in prayer, which I have posted for the last few years. We tend to think of the feasting of Mardi Gras as being totally opposite to the fasting of Lent. But they don't have to be. If we turn our eyes toward God the entire time, feasting and fasting can be seen as sides of the same coin. In these or similar words, we can pray in the spirit of this day. Blessed are you, Lord God of ...http://happycatholic.blogspot.com/2016/02/mardi-gras-prayer.html

Grant Pardon YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - February 9, 2016 ... service You desire. I offer what I am, imperfect as can be, and trust You will find a way to make use of me. Study The last day of ordinary time for weeks and weeks and weeks. Are you ready? I'm not. Lent is sneaking up on me this year, as it may be for you. It's early this year, but even when it's late, there never seems to be enough time to prepare one's soul for a season of self-examination, fasting, and penance. After all, there's real life to deal with between the end of ...http://yourdailytripod.blogspot.com/2016/02/grant-pardon.html

Lent Begins P R WOMAN FOR CHRIST - February 9, 2016 ... crucified will rise." A number of candidates seeking the office of our United States presidency have latched onto catch phrases such as "rise" and take up "greatness." Rising, just like the process of tiny plants during their growth crack open the seed and leave it behind as they push through the earth toward the sun, requires leaving the familiar and cozy behind to risk getting above ground and thriving in the light of the sun. So we need to crack open the shell of our old ...http://prwomanforchrist.blogspot.com/2016/02/lent-begins.html

What's It All About? A CONCORD PASTOR COMMENTS - February 8, 2016 ... some "starter questions" for your prayer and reflection over the next couple of days... 1) Lent is a kind of spiritual spring training for Christians. What has grown weak, what's out of shape in my spiritual life? in my prayer life? in my relationship with Jesus? How do I need to exercise my spiritual life to condition and strengthen it? What in my spiritual life needs stretching and working out? What small steps might I take every day in Lent ...http://concordpastor.blogspot.com/2016/02/whats-it-all-about.html

Year of Mercy: Mercy: The Heart of the Gospel FRANCISCAN LIFE - February 8, 2016 As I indicated last month, we have a committee of sisters planning reflections for each month during this Jubilee Year of Mercy. The February reflection was prepared by Sr. Joan Dew. We hope you find it helpful for your own prayer and reflection!

Things to Do This Lent A CATHOLIC MOM IN HAWAII - February 8, 2016 Here are some suggestions that may help you grow spiritually this Lent. Of course, the best suggestion I can give you is to try to attend Holy Mass daily and pray the Holy Rosary daily and/or with your family. 1. Drink only water during the week and Saturday. Save your juices, carbonated beverages, etc. for Sunday. 2. Meditate on Jesus' words: "I thirst" and refrain from drinking even water for at least five minutes or so, especially when you are very thirsty. 3. Eat only ...http://hicatholicmom.blogspot.com/2016/02/things-to-do-this-lent.html

You may read each one, then repeat the "Lord-hear-our-prayer"-type response given in the beginning. OR you may simply read each petition WITHOUT using the response/refrain. Both options are in the general instruction. I usually skip the repeated response, being a person lacking in devoutness who wants my liturgical hours to be short and sweet. Next, recite the Our Father. Then the final prayer. Conclude with, (while making the sign of the cross), May the Lord bless us, protect us ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CoffeeAndCanticles-TheDivineOfficeInYourLife/~3/IzvcHeHOAy4/divine-office-boot-camp-ii-invitatory.html

Chosen, Called, and Sent Καθολικός διάκονος - February 7, 2016 Readings: Isa 6:1-2a.3-8; Ps 138:1-5.7-8; 1 Cor 15:1-11; Luke 5:1-11 This week, the final Sunday before Lent begins, each of our three readings tells us about a calling issued and accepted. As Catholics we tend to use the word "vocation" instead of calling, but these words are synonymous, that is, they effectively mean the same thing. To my mind, one of the most important messages conveyed to us through hearing about the divine callings of Isaiah, Paul, ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2016/02/chosen-called-and-sent.html

Homily: Of Buds, Promises and Discipleship BUKAS PALAD - February 6, 2016 ... 5.1-11 Let's be honest. Some of us may be physically present here for Mass but we are preoccupied with the imminent Chinese New Year celebrations. We might be worried about tonight's Reunion dinner: are the preparations done? will there be enough food? Will the warring siblings make peace? We might be concerned about the number of ang pows (red packets) to give out and how much to put into each of them. The children are probably eager for ...http://bukas-palad.blogspot.com/2016/02/homily-of-buds-promises-and-discipleship.html

Archbishop's Letter to the Faithful of Ottawa for Lent 2016 THE JOURNEY OF A BISHOP - February 5, 2016 TO GROW IN MERCY THIS LENT Dear brothers and sisters in Christ: Lent is about my call as a disciple of Jesus to renew my dying to sin and rising to newness of life with Christ that took place when I was baptized. We Catholics do this as we accompany, in prayer and with other gestures of support the "Elect", who will celebrate the Sacraments of Christian Initiation at the Easter Vigil. ...http://archbishopterry.blogspot.com/2016/02/archbishops-letter-to-faithful-of.html
