March 16

 
Lent 2018

Saturday of the First Week in Lent

Read

St. Patrick’s feast day is tomorrow but will not be celebrated by the Church this year as his feast day falls on a Sunday. 

Reflect

On March 16, 2016, Pope Francis said in his general audience of St. Patrick: “May his spiritual strength inspire you, dear young people, to be consistent in your faith; may his faith in Christ the Savior sustain you, dear sick people, at the most difficult times; and may his missionary devotion remind you, dear newlyweds, of the importance of Christian education for your children.”

Pray

In honor of St. Patrick, who was once captured and sold into slavery, pray for all victims of human trafficking today.
