Lent: The Grappin - Homily for March 5



Beginning this weekend, I will be posting my Sunday homilies in audio-only format on account of the extra time it takes to type, format, and post the text version. I apologize if this causes some inconvenience for you, but I trust you understand. I will continue to post the audio portion here along with links to the readings as normal. Thank you, as always, and know of my prayers for each of you. Please pray for me too.

Papal Intentions for March 2017

Papal Intention for March 2017

That persecuted Christians may be supported by the prayers and material help of the whole Church.

Prayer for the Pope

V. Let us pray for Francis, our Pope.
R. May the Lord preserve him, give him life, 
and make him blessed upon the earth, 
and deliver him not up to the will of his enemies.

Our Father... Hail Mary...

O God, Shepherd and Ruler of all Thy faithful people, look mercifully upon Thy servant Francis, whom Thou hast chosen as shepherd to preside over Thy Church. Grant him, we beseech Thee, that by his word and example, he may edify those over whom he hath charge, so that together with the flock committed to him, may he attain everlasting life. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
