Attende Domine, et miserere, quia peccavimus tibi.

Attende Domine, et miserere, quia peccavimus tibi.

Ad te Rex summe,
omnium Redemptor,

oculos nostros
 sublevamus flentes:
supplicantum preces.

Attende Domine, et miserere, quia peccavimus tibi.

Dextera Patris,
lapis angularis,

via salutis,
ianua caelestis,

ablue nostri
maculas delicti.

Attende Domine, et miserere, quia peccavimus tibi.

Rogamus, Deus,
tuam maiestatem:

auribus sacris

Stations of the Cross every Friday during Lent @ 7 p.m.

We have the Stations of Cross every Friday evening at 7:00 p.m. during Lent. Make a pilgrimage with Jesus as he carries his cross to Calvary. The Stations of the Cross (also called the Way of the Cross), refer to a series of artistic representations depicting Jesus carrying his Cross to his Crucifixion in the final hours of his life, and to the devotions commemorating his Passion. 
The vast majority of Catholic churches contain such a series, typically placed at intervals along the side walls. In most churches these are small plaques with reliefs or paintings.

Lenten Observances

on Mon, 02/11/2013 - 14:24

Lent is a time of prayer, fasting and almsgiving.  What is your Lenten penance this year?  Here are some ideas.  During Lent, the Church asks us to surrender ourselves to prayer and to the reading of Scripture, to fasting and to giving alms. The fasting that all do together on Fridays is but a sign of the daily Lenten discipline of individuals and households: fasting for certain periods of time, fasting from certain foods, but also fasting from other things and activities.
