A Weekend In Lent – Prayer Care Share
17th – 19th March 2017
“In serving the aged. It is he himself whom you are serving…. They are the suffering members of our Lord.” Saint Jeanne Jugan
“Look upon the poor with compassion, and Jesus will look upon you with kindness on the last day.” Saint Jeanne Jugan.
In Pope Francis Apostolic Letter ‘Misericordia et Misera’ for the conclusion of the extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy (2015-2016). He reminds us that: “We are called to promote a culture of mercy based on the rediscovery of encounter with others, a culture in which no one looks at another with indifference or turns away from the suffering of our brothers and sisters. The works of mercy are “handcrafted”, in the sense that none of them is alike. Our hands can craft them in a thousand different ways, and even though the one God inspires them, and they are all fashioned from the same “material”, mercy itself, each one takes on a different form. The works of mercy affect a person’s entire life”
Our lives during Lent can be affected in many different ways, to make us better people by going out to others and being attentive to their needs. This openness to God’s presence will give us peace and great interior joy and prepare us to celebrate the Risen Lord at Easter.
