From the Rector: Daily Considerations for Lent

Lent 2017

Daily considerations for Lent:

Sunday, March 26: By your repentance, you can please your father God, as did the Prodigal Son.

“Now we must celebrate and rejoice, because your brother was dead and has come to life again; he was lost and has been found.” (Gospel: Luke 15:32)

Monday, March 27: Like the saints we should have confident recourse to Our Lord in all our needs.

“As for me, I trust in the Lord. Let me be glad and rejoice in your mercy, for you have seen my affliction.” (Entrance antiphon)

Tuesday, March 28: Be sure to thank God for the wonderful things he has done for you.

“Come! Behold the deeds of the Lord, the astonishing things he has wrought on earth” (Resp. Psalm 46:9)

Wednesday, March 29: Remember: God loves you more than all the mothers and fathers on earth put together love their children.

“Can a mother forget her infant, be without tenderness for the child of her womb? Even should she forget, I will never forget you.” (First Reading: Is.49:15)

Thursday, March 30: In your heart, seek God and do not doubt that you will find him.

“Let the hearts that seek the Lord rejoice; turn to the Lord and his strength; constantly seek his face.” (Entrance antiphon)

Friday, March 31: Never doubt that God hears your every request.

“O God, save me by your name; by your power, defend my cause. O God, hear my prayer; give ear to the words of my mouth.”  (Entrance antiphon)

Saturday, April 1: Since you know that trials, hardships and temptations will come your way, resolve to call upon God’s help.

“In my anguish I called to the Lord, and from his holy temple he heard my voice” (Entrance antiphon)

Sunday, April 2:  Keep in mind that after Lent –after Our Lord’s Passion and Death- comes his Resurrection to new life.

“I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live.” (Gospel: Jh 11:25
