FREE Catholic Classes
Wednesday of Holy Week - 'Living Lent' Series brought to you by Catholic Online
"I will praise the name of God in song, and I will glorify him with thanksgiving: ... For the Lord hears the poor, and his own who are in bonds he spurns not." (Psalm 69:31, 34)
READING: Matthew 26:17-19
17 Now on the first day of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus to say, 'Where do you want us to make the preparations for you to eat the Passover?'
18 He said, 'Go to a certain man in the city and say to him, "The Master says: My time is near. It is at your house that I am keeping Passover with my disciples." '
19 The disciples did what Jesus told them and prepared the Passover.
Today is the last official day of Lent, but we do not yet break our fasts. Indeed, the holiest days are now upon us. From sundown on Thursday to Easter morning, we will mourn the passing of Christ from this world. We are comforted knowing this is only for a short time.
Today is a day of preparation. The holy days are upon us. Let us make ourselves ready.
LET US PRAY:
Lord, I am heartily sorry for my sins. I beg your forgiveness. Please accept my humble sacrifices, my fasting and my abstinence. Fill me with your grace. My heart is only whole with you inside it. Come quickly! Pardon my sins and fill my heart with love.
I will make an extra effort to give something up and to give something to others today. I will make an additional donation or give something I have to someone in need. I can give to a family member, my Church, or someone in my community. Just as the certain man, without question, opened his room to Jesus and the disciples for the Passover feast, I must also give without question.
