WORSHIP: The Intimate Encounter with Christ

40 Days of Prayer and Fasting

We are heartbroken over the current abuse within the Catholic Church that has been uncovered. We stand by the victims and their families, and pray for their healing. We also pray for the healing of the Church and for all those called to lead it. We must remember that it is in God, not man, that our faith lies.

We invite you to join us as we participate in the #sackclothandashes.  Today we begin 40 days of prayer and fasting, however you see fit, as reparation to God for these sins. We pray for justice and forgiveness for all involved guided by our loving Father, His most precious son and the powerful Holy Spirit. May our Blessed Mother, Queen of Heaven, intercede for us!

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

We will be observing this forty day period as a time of increased prayer and penance, like another Lent. Beginning on August 22, the feast of the Queenship of Mary, we will ask Our Lady to bring the gift of our sacrifices to her son. The month of September is dedicated to Our Lady of Sorrows. It also includes the fall Ember Days on September 19, 21, and 22.

Consider adding prayers to your daily routine, like the Morning Offering, chaplet of reparation, and fasting. Please look at the the images to get some more ideas.

Prayer of Jesus

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation. But deliver us from evil. Amen.
