Lenten Reflections 2013 (In Acrostic)


L earn to love God in every way you can
E nter into a divine accord with the Lord
N ourish your mind, heart and soul with piety
T rounce satan and devils for eternity
E ndear the Lord of Hosts through hymns of praise
N ever try to sin in even the least of ways

R epeatedly pray the Rosary and read the Holy Bible
E merge clearly out of your habitual sins
F ast as much and as long as you possibly can
L ove your poor neighbors through alms-giving
E mulate the lives of saints and of martyrs
C onfess your sins to the priest in the Sacrament of Reconciliation
T otally abstain from meat of every kind and savoury foods
I mitate the passion of Christ at the Stations of the Cross
O ffer masses for various intentions
N ullify the temptations that come your way
S acrifice in every way as part of penance for all your past sins

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
