Lent: Prayer, Repentance, Fasting, Sacrifice, Works of Love
“Yet even now,” says the Lord, “return to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning; and rend your hearts and not your garments.” Return to the Lord, your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love, and repents of evil.” Joel 2:12
From Bishop O’Connell: “During the days and weeks of penance that lie ahead — from Ash Wednesday, March 6, 2019 until Holy Thursday, April 18, 2019 — the Catholic Church throughout the world commemorates the penitential season of Lent. We enter the desert of Lent like Jesus, led by the Holy Spirit, to face our devils, our temptations head on. But we are not alone. The Lord Jesus Christ is with us. And so, too, is the Church, the entire community of faith observing Lent.
Here is what the Catholic Church in the United States requires of us as baptized Catholics:
1. The days of FAST (only one full meal) and ABSTINENCE (no meat) are Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. No dispensations are granted on these solemn days except for reason of sickness or those provided in canon law.
2. All other Fridays of Lent are days of ABSTINENCE (no meat).”
LUMEN CHRISTI COHORT MISSION PRAYER — 2019
Once again you are at the door and knock.
During our parish mission,
You ask us to open the door of our hearts
to your abundant mercy.
Rouse us! Purify and illumine our hearts!
Enter into every home of our parish.
Recall those far off, raise the fallen,
awaken the indifferent,
Strengthen those who seek to be near you.
May no one refuse your invitation, Lord.
Expand our hearts so that we may be merciful to others
as you are so merciful to us.
O Mary, Mother of Mercy
we entrust to you this time of mission.
May it produce abundant fruits in our Christian life.
