Let us pray for our Elects to the sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist.

Lord Jesus, you are the fountain for which they thirsty, you are the Master whom they seek. In your presence they dare not claim to be without sin, for you alone are the Holy One of God.

They open their hearts to you in faith, they confess their faults and lay bare their hidden wounds. In your love free them from their infirmities, heal their thirst, and give them peace.

THE PILLARS OF LENT

Our Lenten journey, reflect on how our prayers, fasting and almsgiving can guide us. As Pope Francis explains, these are “elements which, when lived sincerely, can transform life and provide a sure foundation for dignity and fraternity.” How can practicing the Lenten pillars transform your life and the lives of our sisters and brothers around the world? Visit crsricebowl.org to learn more. (One good way is that all members of the family memorize the basic prayers).

LOS PILARES DE LA CUARESMA

Durante la Cuaresma, reflexiona sobre cómo tus oraciones, sacrificios, ayunos y limosna pueden guiarte. Como lo explica el Papa Francisco, éstos son “elementos que, vividos de modo sincero, pueden transformar la vida y dar una base segura a la dignidad y fraternidad de los hombres”. ¿Cómo puede la práctica de los pilares de la Cuaresma transformar tu vida y la de nuestros en todo el mundo? Visita crsplatodearroz.org para obtener más información. (Tus sacrificios es que toda la familia aprenda de memoria las oraciones basicas)
