Grant me five graces...

  Tuesday of Holy Week

"If you can not soar up as high as Christ 
sitting on His throne, behold Him hanging on His cross. 
Rest in Christ's Passion and live willingly in 
His holy wounds." ~ Thomas à Kempis, Imitation of Christ

"Oh, my God, through the precious
Blood of Jesus and His five wounds, 
grant me today five graces: 

the conversion of a sinner, 
the conversion of an unbeliever, 
the salvation of someone 
dying in peril of everlasting death; 
vocation to the priesthood 
or to the religious life; 
 and, for some new soul, 
the grace of entering into and
savoring the mystery of the Eucharist." 

Prayer of Elisabeth Leseur (+1914)

"The Body of Christ (Eucharist) will unite 
the Body of Christ (Church)." - Bishop Paul Dudley

Let us especially be mindful of and in prayer for 
the thousands of Catechumens and Candidates 
who are preparing to fully enter the Catholic Church on
Easter vigil and participate in her rich sacramental life!
Life in abundance! - John 10:10
