Silver Jubilee Celebration
That in our practice of interior poverty, which was so highly recommended by Christ, we may grow ever more aware that our possessions, our talents and our very being have been given to us by God, and that we are completely dependent on Him. (Art. 22)
For all of our deceased brothers, members of our families, friends and benefactors.
That the days of Lent may be a time of greater recollection, silence and awareness of God's presence.
For healing for those abused by family, friends and the Church.
...concupiscence of the flesh; not fasting, intemperance; wasting money -- which is all the more reprehensible because there are pressing debts... (Confession Notes, Paris, 6/15/1835)
