An overwhelming schedule limits post. The men’s retreat rewarding. Beauty and mystery displayed, a Monet painting is offered.
A prayer for Lent given to me by Father Ireland from Sacred Heart.
Oh most gentle Jesus,
by your precious blood,
deliver us from all evils.
By your most bitter death
give us a lively faith,
firm hope and perfect charity,
so that with our whole hearts
we may love you
with all our soul and strength.
Make us persevere in your service,
firm and steadfast in good works,
so that we may always
be able to please you.
