Wednesday of the Third Week of Lent

Readings of the Day
RB: Ch 47 Signaling the Times for the Work of God
Mass: Dt 4:1, 5-9; Resp Ps 147; Mt 5:17-19

You will show me the path of life, the fullness of joy in your presence, O Lord.

'What great nation is there that has gods so close to it as the Lord, our God, is to us whenever we call upon him?' Let us call upon the name of the Lord, for 'everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved' (Rm 10:13). 

Grant, we pray, O Lord,
that, schooled through Lenten observance
and nourished by your word,
through holy restraint
we may be devoted to you with all our heart
and be ever united in prayer.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity
of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
(Collect, Mass)

Where should we fix our gaze along the journey of Lent? On the crucifix. Jesus on the Cross is the compass of life that points us to Heaven.
(Pope Francis, Twitter, March 27, 2019)
