A Lenten Prayer

Heavenly Father,

In this season of journeying in the desert through Lent, we come before you with humble hearts. We seek your guidance and your grace as we journey towards Easter, remembering the sacrifice of your Son, Jesus Christ, on the cross.

Lord, we pray for peace in our world, especially in places torn by conflict and strife, and pray that your love prevails. Let your love sow seeds of understanding and compassion where there is hatred. We pray that our leaders may be guided by wisdom and a deep desire for peace. May they seek dialogue over division and unity over discord.

In this Lenten season, let us listen to the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor and vulnerable. May we always reflect your love and peace in our lives, and may our actions contribute to lasting peace in our world.

In Jesus' name, we pray. Amen.

Lenten Quotes from Father Chaminade

Let us reflect on some Lenten quotes by Father Chaminade:

Ash Wednesday

“I am the Lord your God, be holy for I am holy” (Lev 11:44)...

“Be holy,” as special sons of Mary, our most holy Mother of whom you are to be the cooperators so that, like her, you can engender Jesus in the hearts of the faithful and bring to birth children destined for holiness. “My little children, whom I bring to birth anew until. . . .” (Gal 4:19).

Lent Thursday Week 1

Notes on Prayer

Amen, Amen, I say to you, “If you ask the Father anything in my name, he will give it to you. Until now, you have not asked anything in my name. Ask and you shall receive, that your joy may be full” (Jn 16:23-24).

A magnificent promise, which only a God could make, for God alone can fulfill it.

Prayer has a kind of power over the all-powerful word of God...

Without me you can do nothing (Jn 15:5). We ought to pray always, and not become weary (Lk 18:1)...

Prayer is at once both the practice and the support of all the virtues; it exercises and enlivens them all.

-The Chaminade Legacy, Vol. 2, Doc. 84 [107]
