Here is the prayer Pope Francis recited by video March 11 for a special Mass and act of prayer asking Mary to protect Italy and the world during the coronavirus pandemic:
O Mary, you always shine on our path as a sign of salvation and of hope. We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who at the cross took part in Jesus’ pain, keeping your faith firm.
You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need, and we are sure you will provide so that, as in Cana of Galilee, we may return to joy and to feasting after this time of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform to the will of the Father and to do as we are told by Jesus, who has taken upon Himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows to lead us, through the cross, to the joy of the resurrection. Amen.
Under your protection, we seek refuge, Holy Mother of God. Do not disdain the pleas, we who are put to test, but deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
Our Lent begins this year with Ash Monday, February 24th and concludes on Easter Sunday, April 12th. Ash Monday Liturgies will be at 10:00am & 7:00pm.
Here are the Lent Regulations:
All those who have reached their 14th birthday are to abstain from eating meat on Ash Monday & on all Fridays of Lent. Fasting should be from midnight until noon. Of course you are all encourage to also fast & do other acts of penance on the other days during Lent, especially Fridays. There are plenty works of charity & you can help by doing your share of compassion & mercy. Most important do good things instead of just giving up some food…
Have a blessed Lent.
Confession during Lent:
You are encouraged to approach the Sacrament of Reconciliation during this season of Lent. Catholics must go to confession at least once a year and as often as they need it in order to cleanse themselves of sins and be in a state of grace.
