As we enter another week of our Lenten journey, guide us to the path that leads to you. Fill our hearts with gratitude, patience, strength, and peace as we strive to become the best versions of ourselves, honestly admitting our shortcomings and sins. As we renew our resolve each day to become better people, let us hear your voice in the deepest reaches of our hearts. Give us rest in you. Help us to accept others, showing them your great love instead of casting judgment. Stay with us through the busy days this week and remind us that when we need comfort, solitude, wisdom, or guidance, we can always turn to you. Help us develop discipline and generosity through fasting and almsgiving, and come closer to you through prayer this Lent. In your name we pray, Amen.
…Saint Anthony of Padua Parish bulletin
If my heart broke to pieces,
And one part is in heaven,
That certainly helps the hurt.
I drafted the above and then read Ephesians 3:16-21; a mind-blowing affirmation.
Each broken in some way;
but when joined in prayer,
a mosaic of strength.
What would happen if the human spirit lived up to all of its potential?
– Father DeRosier, sermon excerpt
Nashoba Valley Catholic Collaborative
Confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
– Hebrews 11:1
The outdoors is a peaceful place –
and where I feel close to my Dad.
I enjoy the air, smell and views –
with both a light and heavy heart.
” I am my own vehicle to success…
…and I get to define what success looks like.”
