First Sunday of Lent - Pope St. Felix II
I pray for the Pope. That he may lead Catholics to deeper faith and union and that he live long enough to right the waywardness that has hurt the Church so much in the past 40 years. I also pray for his intentions for the month of March:
That the role of women may be more appreciated and used to good advantage in every country in the world." His missionary intention is: "That, in the light of the Letter addressed to them by Pope Benedict XVI, the bishops, priests, consecrated persons and lay faithful of the Catholic Church in the Popular Republic of China may commit themselves to being the sign and instrument of unity, communion and peace."
Julian asks our Lord to give Ama Gaby good health so that we may enjoy her company for many, many years.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, have mercy on us.
