2nd Sunday in Lent


 Fr. Johnny Doherty, C.Ss.R.

 March 16th – 22nd 2014

It is wonderful for us to be here

“Lord, it is wonderful for us to be here.” We have a right to be able to say that in relation to our life of faith and our life of love. But we also have a responsibility to each other to make that statement possible for one another. One of the special places of that statement must be in the relationship of husband and wife in marriage. Make your marriage a place where the other person is very glad to be. Make your home a place where everyone who lives there can say: “it is wonderful to be here”. Make the Church a community where everyone can experience the warmth of God’s love. Those are the kind of challenges that are in our following of Christ and that are particularly relevant during this time of Lent. We have to put ourselves out in order to make all of that happen in our homes and faith community.  Lent is about just that.

Morning Prayer, when together

God our Father, help us to hear your Son.

Enlighten us with your word

so that, through our love for one another,

we may find the way to your glory.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

 During the day, when apart

Lord, make us holy.

Bless our marriage with your peace and joy,

that we may be prepared to celebrate the resurrection.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.


Evening/Night Prayer together

Lord, we give thanks to you for all your gifts of life and love.

Through our love for each other

give us a share in the life to come.

We make our prayer through Christ our Lord.

Questions for Action for the week

For your marriage: What are three of the happiest memories you have of your life together?  How could you relive these this week?

For others: Think of some group that works for people suffering from depression.  How could you help them this week?
