Lent 2018

Third Sunday of Lent


At the opening of today's Gospel, we hear, "Since the Passover of the Jews was near, Jesus went up to Jerusalem." Take time to read today about the Jewish tradition of Passover and how it relates to the Eucharist.


Reflect on the readings today with the ancient art of lectio divina.


Act of Contrition

O my God, I am heartily sorry

for having offended Thee, and I

detest all my sins because of thy

just punishments, but most of all

because they offend Thee, my God,

who art all good and deserving of

all my love. I firmly resolve with the

help of Thy grace to sin no more

and to avoid the near occasion of

sin. Amen.

—Traditional version (USCCA, 536)


In the first reading today, we hear the Ten Commandments. Read this short reflection on the commandments today.
