Intentions of the Holy Father for April

Ecology and Justice. That governments may foster the protection of creation and the just distribution of natural resources.
Hope for the Sick. That the Risen Lord may fill with hope the hearts of those who are being tested by pain and sickness.

Were You There?

If you've been to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, then you've been to the Holy Sacrifice of Calvary re-presented across time and space. If you're Catholic and you've missed Mass without a very serious reason, now is the time to go to your local parish, make a good confession and receive Holy Communion with our Blessed Lord. If you're not there, then you weren't There, and His Precious Blood isn't upon you, and you aren't sheltered under the shadow of the Cross.

Lord Jesus Christ, we pray you help us to turn from sin and stand with you at the foot of your Cross, come what may, so that we may in the end rise with you from death; and that you bring our family and friends with us. Amen.
