Prayer of the Day

First Week of Lent – Feast of St. Fintan & Seven Holy Founders of the Servite Order

February 17th, 2016
"The only sign given is the sign of Jonah. " Luke 11 : 29

The Lord still calls us to repentance, to healing, to wholeness. The real miracle, the real sign of conversion is a heart that is full of contrition and seeks to return to God; Repentance is hard work. It requires us to be honest with ourselves and turn away from our sins and return toward the Lord. It’s our relationship with the Lord that really counts.   In today’s reading we are reminded that the people of Nineveh repented at the preaching of Jonah and thus were saved. May these Lenten days be moments where we reflect upon our lives and become more faithful to you Lord.


Lord Jesus, give me a heart that loves what is good and in accord with your will and fill me with your wisdom that I may understand your ways. Amen
