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 Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
