SNOW: Monday after Second Sunday: Lent 2018

Novena to Saint Gabriel: Day 8

Station Church: San Clemente

Suspending normal post. Well because it snowed!! First, a throwback to the 1950s:

SNOW BALL FIGHT (captured by an English seminarian, Mr. Piotr Wygnański): Help me provide these young seminarians with my new book of Meditations on the Passion: Books4Sems! Enjoy them living a fun and balanced life on this beautiful day in Rome! I’ve raised $800 so far (thanks to a pledged check donation made by a friend from Nebraska) and the first round of books is on its way to Conception Seminary in Missouri! Don’t miss the opportunity to participate in this exciting endeavor, from which so many graces will descend for the conversion and spiritual growth of the faithful in years to come!!

Prayer over the people:

Let us pray.

Bow your heads to God.

Give heed to our humble prayers, almighty God, and kindly grant Your oft-given mercy to those upon whom You bestow great hope in Your goodness.
Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

R. Amen.
