 Wednesday of the Second Week of Lent:

The sign of the cross makes kings of all those reborn in Christ and the anointing of the Holy Spirit consecrates them as priests, so that, apart from the particular service of our ministry, all spiritual and rational Christians are recognized as members of this royal race and sharers in Christ’s priestly office. What, indeed, is as royal for a soul as to govern the body in obedience to God? And what is as priestly as to dedicate a pure conscience to the Lord and to offer the spotless offering of devotion on the altar of the heart? –St. Leo the Great

Tuesday of the Second Week of Lent:

Monday of the Second Week of Lent:

Lenten reflection, Sunday, Second Week of Lent

Sunday of the Second Week of Lent: 

Late have I loved you,
Beauty so ancient and so new,
late have I loved you!

Lo, you were within,
but I outside, seeking there for you,
and upon the lovely things you have made
I rushed headlong,
I, misshapen.
You were with me but I was not with you.
They held me back far from you,
those things which would have no being
were they not in you.

You called, shouted, broke through my deafness;
you flared, blazed, banished my blindness;
you lavished your fragrance,
I gasped, and now I pant for you;
I tasted you, and I hunger and thirst;
you touched me, and I burned for your peace.  -St. Augustine

Lenten reflection, Saturday, First Week of Lent

This Lent we are happy to announce that Fr Joseph-Mary Hertzog, OP will be providing us with brief daily reflections for the penitential season of Lent.  They will be posted here and at our Facebook page for your spiritual edification.

Saturday of the First Week of Lent: 
In times of aridity when I am incapable of praying, of practicing virtue, I seek little opportunities, mere trifles, to give pleasure to Jesus; for instance a smile, a pleasant word when inclined to be silent and to show weariness. If I find no opportunities, I at least tell Him again and again that I love Him; that is not difficult and it keeps alive the fire in my heart. Even though this fire of love might seem extinct I would still throw little straws upon the embers and I am certain it would rekindle.  -St. Thérèse of Lisieux

This Lent we are happy to announce that Fr Joseph-Mary Hertzog, OP will be providing us with brief daily reflections for the penitential season of Lent.  They will be posted here and at our Facebook page for your spiritual edification.

Friday of the First Week of Lent: 
Consider attentively the tombs of the dead and seek there some small trace of their former magnificence and wealth and the pleasures they enjoyed. Tell me, where now are their ornaments and beautiful vestures? Where are their recreations and sports? Where are their companions and the multitude of their servants? The feasts and banquets, the laughter and games, the worldly joys and pleasures, all are ended now. Approach more closely to the tomb and you will see there nothing but a handful of dust and ashes, worms and rotted bones. Such is the end of the human body which has given itself to pleasure and wealth.  -St. John Chrysostom

Thursday of the First Week of Lent:
Do not be troubled if you do not immediately receive from God what you ask him; for he desires to do something even greater for you, while you cling to him in prayer. -Evagrius Ponticus
 
God wills that our desire should be exercised in prayer, that we may be able to receive what he is prepared to give. -St. Augustine

Wednesday of the First Week of Lent:
Every action of yours, every thought, should be those of one who expects to die before the day is out. Death would have no great terror for you if you had a quiet conscience… Then why not keep clear of sin instead of running away from death? If you aren’t fit to face death today, it’s very unlikely you will be tomorrow… –The Imitation of Christ

Tuesday of the First Week of Lent:

[Human nature’s] natural inclination to virtue is diminished by sin because human acts produce an inclination to like acts. Now from the very fact that a thing becomes inclined to one of two contraries, its inclination to the other contrary must needs be diminished. Wherefore as sin is opposed to virtue, from the very fact that a man sins, there results a diminution of the good of [human] nature, which is the inclination to virtue.  -St. Thomas Aquinas
