State President's Message - March 2018
State President’s March Message
I hope that everyone has had a holy and reflective Lent and as we enter into the final days before the Triduum, I came across the below prayer on dynamicCatholic.com, that I would like to share with you.
As we enter the last week of our Lenten journey, guide us to the path that leads to you. Fill our hearts with gratitude, patience, strength, and peace as we strive to become the-best-version-of-ourselves, honestly admitting our shortcomings and sins.
As we renew our resolve each day to become a better person, let us hear your voice in the deepest reaches of our hearts. Give us rest in you. Help us to accept others, showing them your great love instead of casting judgment.
Stay with us through the busy days this week and remind us that when we need comfort, solitude, wisdom, or guidance, we can always turn to you. Help us develop discipline and generosity through fasting and almsgiving and come closer to you through prayer.
In your name we pray, Amen.
Wishing all my Sister Columbiettes and their families a Blessed and Happy Easter!
