Spiritual Exercises for Lent:Day 18

Spiritual Exercises for Lent:Day 18

Prepare well for the Confession. Frequent Confession is like a shower for your soul, cleansing you completely, giving you healing and freedom from sin. Frequent Confession is like a petrol for your soul, it keeps you going through the rough roads of our lives. Sacrament of the Reconciliation is a superb grace. It is a big “SORRY” said to our Father in Heaven every time we do wrong, every time we fail or disappoint God, every time we fail to keep His Commandments.

A guide  for good confession:

  • If you need help especially if you have been away for some time simply ask the priest and he will help you by “walking” you through the steps to make a good confession.
  • Be truly sorry for your sins, ask God for the Holy Spirit to help you to examine your conscience, best way is to go through 10 Commandments and see if you kept them or not.
  • Remember that it is really Jesus who gives you forgiveness through priest
  • Always tell the priest your state of life: married or single, priest or religious, under religious vows or promises

Prayer for Christian Unity

PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY

God of compassion,
you have loved and forgiven us in Christ,
and sought to reconcile the entire human race
in that redeeming love.
Look with favour upon us,
who work and pray
for the unity of divided Christian communities.
Grant us the experience of being brothers and sisters in your love.
We ask this through Our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God for ever and ever. Amen.

Prayer for the Church in Ireland

Our Lady of Knock, Queen of Ireland, Co.MayoPrayer for the Church in Ireland

God of our fathers,
renew us in the faith which is our life and salvation,
the hope which promises forgiveness and interior renewal,
the charity which purifies and opens our hearts
to love you, and in you, each of our brothers and sisters.

Lord Jesus Christ,
may the Church in Ireland renew her age-old commitment
to the education of our young people in the way of truth and goodness, holiness and generous service to society.

Holy Spirit, comforter, advocate and guide,
inspire a new springtime of holiness and apostolic zeal
for the Church in Ireland.

May our sorrow and our tears,
our sincere effort to redress past wrongs,
and our firm purpose of amendment
bear an abundant harvest of grace
for the deepening of the faith
in our families, parishes, schools and communities,
for the spiritual progress of Irish society,
and the growth of charity, justice, joy and peace
within the whole human family.

To you, Triune God,
confident in the loving protection of Mary,
Queen of Ireland, our Mother,
and of Saint Patrick, Saint Brigid and all the saints,
do we entrust ourselves, our children,
and the needs of the Church in Ireland.

Amen.

25th March- feast of the Annunciation in Sister Lucia’s words

Sister Lucia talks about the Annunciation in her books "Calls from the message of Fatima"Through this feast day God reveals to us how the incarnation of the Word took place; He speaks to us of the mystery of the Most Holy Trinity, that is one God in three distinct Persons: “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God”.

God did not choose just any woman to be the Mother of His Son who, of course, could not assume a nature stained by sin. Therefore He made Mary immaculate from the first instant of her life, the moment of her conception; and she remained always a virgin. If Mary had not been full of grace and all holy, the Angel could not have said to her that she was full of grace, because she would have some stain of sin in her.

Through the merits of the Word made flesh, from whom we receive pardon and grace, we also, if we are fortunate enough to possess the gift of faith and to live a good life, are living temples of the adorable Trinity.
