Teach us to Pray

This is an awesome post by Msgr. Charles Pope. It’s about organizing our prayer according to what Jesus taught us in the Our Father.

May I offer you …

During Lent, we’re doing morning offerings with the kids before school and then a midday offering when they come home. I’m including the prayers, here, in case you want to copy or modify them for your own family.

Our Morning Offering During Lent

[Make the Sign of the Cross]

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for another day and this gift of life.

I offer to you my prayers,

all that I do, and all that I may struggle with

as I walk with you during Lent on the path toward Easter.

Help me remember today and always that I am your body here on earth.

You are in my heart, my hands and feet, eyes and ears.

May I try my hardest to act as you would,

and to be your disciple by sharing your love

with all I meet today.

Amen.

Our Midday Offering During Lent

[Make the Sign of the Cross]

Dear Jesus,

My day is half over, Thank you for always being at my side in the hours passed and the hours yet to be.

I pray for those who need my prayers and for all those who have no one to pray for them. I especially pray this afternoon for the intentions of our Holy Father, Pope Benedict the 16th.

and … (Your own special intentions)

Always in your name we pray, (Hail Mary and a Glory Be)

Amen.

Watch this

Here’s a link to a kick-off video for Lent, but out yesterday by Archbishop Dolan of NY. If he hadn’t heard the call to priesthood, I’m sure he’d be a football or baseball coach somewhere. Go team! Love it.

Also, a little post I wrote a few days ago at fivehalos.wordpress.com. Lentamente.

Huff and puff

Who's afraid of the big bad wolf?

We’re talking about evil tonight in our session: Hungry Like the Wolf. This session was postponed because of last month’s snow storm. I have to be honest, I was thoroughly bummed because I didn’t want to think about E V I L in depth for another month! The fact that is was postponed has been fruitful for me … let’s hope it’s fruitful for all those present. Hope to see you!
