Visit my on-line Stations of the Cross.  I wrote the text for children and
adults alike.  They're available in English and Spanish as well.  Visit the
Stations every day during Lent.  They've been newly illustrated by the 4th
Graders of Saint Pat's School. I think you'll like them a great deal. Here's
the link: www.frpat.com/stations.htm

Visit all my Lenten pages.  There are many resources, including resources
for Reconciliation (Confession), a great Examination of Conscience, and
evena "printable" Credit Card to Heaven that contains all the words you'll
need for Confession except the sins.  So, even if you haven't been to
Confession for 92 years, this can be the year for your!  Just follow the
banner link from:  www.frpat.com

Sts. Perpetua and Felicity (d. 203?)
?When my father in his affection for me was trying to turn me from my
purpose by arguments and thus weaken my faith, I said to him, ?Do you see
this vessel?waterpot or whatever it may be? Can it be called by any other
name than what it is?? ?No,? he replied. ?So also I cannot call myself by
any other name than what I am?a Christian.?? So writes Perpetua, young,
beautiful, well-educated, a noblewoman of Carthage, mother of an infant
son and chronicler of the persecution of the Christians by Emperor
Septimius Severus.  For more, click the link below;

Wis 2:1a, 12-22

The wicked said among themselves, thinking not aright:?Let us beset the
just one, because he is obnoxious to us; he sets himself against our
doings, Reproaches us for transgressions of the law and charges us with
violations of our training. ~  Wisdom 2:1a, 12-22

Some of the inhabitants of Jerusalem said, ?Is he not the one they are
trying to kill?" ~ John 7:1-2, 10, 25-30

When we encounter  someone truly just and good we can be tempted to look
for that person's weaknesses.  Even if we can't find any we can see that
person as obnoxious to us because of the contrast between that person and
ourselves.  Rather than trying to do away with the truy just and good we
can emulate their behavior and follow their example.  That's what Jesus

.=: P R A Y E R    F O R    T H E    D A Y :=.

I pray that I may not talk against the good and just.  I pray that I can
strive to follow their example as Jesus would have us do.

.=: W E     P R A Y  :=.

We pray for unity in our country and that we may build a Culture of Life.
Wepray for the safety of our troops, their safe return and their families
at home.  We pray for a deep and profound respect for life, and for the
courage and willingness to stand up for life. We pray for one another, for
those who have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the
most. Have a good day!

May God Bless you and those you love, and keep you safe!

Father Pat

Newly written each day by Father Pat Umberger.  Morning Prayer may not be 
published by others, but is a good resource for preachers and those who attend 
Daily Mass, and those who would like to keep up with the Lectionary Readings 
and are not always able to attend Daily Mass.
