Lent is meant to be our journey


into the desert. Just as Jesus spent
these days fighting with
temptation and ultimately
building up his spiritual strength,
we too are called to spend the
next forty days doing battle with
the things that tempt us. We are
invited during this holy season to
grow in self-discipline by giving
something up for Lent. The longstanding Christian practices of
prayer, fasting, and almsgiving
are also important elements of
this spiritual battle. When we
pray, we open ourselves to the
Holy Spirit, thereby squeezing
out any spirit of selfishness or evil
that threatens to control our
hearts. When we fast, we exercise
the virtue of temperance, or selfcontrol. This virtue is of
tremendous value when we are
tempted to indulge our bodily
senses in ways that are not
healthy or holy. And almsgiving-when it is truly generous--also
strengthens us spiritually by
shifting our gaze to the needs of
others, even to the point of
making a personal sacrifice.
During Lent, we acknowledge the
battle between good and evil
within our own souls and do what
we can to stir up a victory for
goodness. This season of
purification can help each of us to
become a better, holier, and
therefore happier person. May we
make good use of this, our
journey into the desert.

DAILY PRAYER FOR PRIESTS


O Jesus,
I pray for your faithful and; fervent priests;
For your unfaithful and tepid priests;
For your priests laboring at home or
Abroad in distant mission fields.
For your tempted priests;
For your lonely and desolate priests;
For your young priests; For your dying priests;
For the souls of your priests in Purgatory.
But above all, I recommend to you
The priests dearest to me;
The priest who baptized me;
The priests who absolved me from my sins;
The priests at whose Masses
I assisted and who gave me
Your Body and Blood in Holy Communion;
The priests who taught and instructed me;
All the priests to whom I am indebted
in any other way
(especially...)
O Jesus, keep them all close to your heart,
And bless them abundantly
in time and in Eternity,
