Every human being is the object of God’s infinite tenderness, and he himself is present in their lives. Jesus offered his precious blood on the cross for that person.
~Pope Francis in Joy of the Gospel
The Season of Lent is upon us. This Lent 2015 affords us an opportune time to reflect on God’s love for humanity, for each one of us. We are reminded at this Season of Lent to offer prayers, alms giving and sacrifices for those in need, especially those so loved by God and suffering from the injustices of people and nations. We become Christ’s hands by helping others carrying their crosses.
We use our hands in prayer, especially the prayer of the Rosary contemplating on the Sorrowful Mysteries in the life of Christ. We use our hands in volunteer work to assist the needy and our hands in making simple Lenten meals allowing us to fast. We use our hands in giving alms to help the poor.
Blessed are the 40 Days of Lent! For your reflections during Lent joins the Family Rosary Community in the Weekly Family Prayer and the Weekly Homily.
