Lent: opening the heart... to grace...

 "Dry bones and limp lives can come alive
by giving God permission to make us
what He wants us to be." - Fr. George Rutler

"We entreat you not to offer God's grace 
an ineffectual welcome (II Cor 6:1).  
Yes, God's grace can fill us this Lent, 
provided we do not close the doors of our heart
We must be well-disposed, we must really want to change; 
we cannot play with God's grace. ...

We cannot regard this Lent 
as just another liturgical season 
which has simply happened to come around again. 
It is a unique time: 
a divine aid which we should accept. 

Jesus is passing by and He hopes that we will 
take a great step forward — today, now."

St Josemaria Escriva
Christ is Passing By

 + Prayer + Fasting  + Almsgiving +

Also remembering today...

Sts Perpetua and Felicity, 
pray for us!
