During Lent, I offer this prayer which is based on Pope Francis' message for Lent this year:
our Father, you sent your son in weakness and poverty into the world
that you love so much. During this season of Lent, we ask that
you help us to imitate Jesus by sacrificing ourselves for our brothers
and sisters who are materially, morally, and spiritually destitute. Let
us see Jesus' face in the poor and the outcast. By serving them, may we
love them and serve Christ. Let us be joyful
heralds of your Gospel message of mercy and hope. And finally let us
not be afraid to feel the hurt through our charity for then we know that
it is real. We ask all these things through Our Lady and her son Christ
The Joy of Mercy
