Prayers for this week, Days11-17 in Lent:
Begin each day with "Lord, I wish to consecrate myself to You, through Your Mother, Mary."
|St. Enrique de Osso y Cervello|
No Meat Today
Saint Enrique de Osso y Cervello was a Spanish Carmelite priest whose works were dedicated for the promotion of the family. He believed that holiness was promoted in families through women. Meditate on his quote, "The world has always been what women have made it."
Pray this brief litany:
Mary, conceived without sin, pray for all sinners, R. Lord, hear your Mother's prayer!
--that we may be made holy by Your Son.
Mother most pure, pray for our purity of heart,
--that we may will what God wills.
Mother of Divine Grace, pray for all those who seek God,
--that we may find Him during this Lent.
Pray these two word prayers.
Mary, pray for me
End the day with, "Lord, hear Your Mother's prayers."
End your day with an examination of conscience--even in bed.
Mother of God, pray for me.
What good did I do today?
Where did I fail?
How can I do better?
