Introit: Laetare Jerusalem: et conventum facite omnes qui diligitis eam: gaudete cum laetitia, qui in tristitia fuistis: ut exsultetis,et satiemini ab uberibus consolationis vestrae
Rejoice, O Jerusalem: and come together all you that love her: rejoice with joy, you that have been in sorrow: that you may exult, and be filled from the breasts of your consolation.
Collect: O God, who through your Word reconcile the human race to yourself in a wonderful way, grant, we pray, that with prompt devotion and eager faith the Christian people may hasten toward the solemn celebrations to come.
Rejoice, O Jerusalem! We are almost there. Lent is almost over. The wait and eager patience is almost at an end. Therefore, let us rejoice!
For God sent his only son to die for us.
The Divine Mercy is comprehensible. Let us stick with that and just rejoice in the mercy.
Anyway, I’m in Tampa now for a service trip with the CSA. Sleep deprivation is fun, but we made it. Looking forward to all the service we have planned for the week.
Pray for us and our service, and pray for the ones we will be serving.
Have a blessed Lent.
