Our Lenten Journey, March 13, 2018


Today’s Readings from the USCCB:
• • •
“Renounce yourself in order to follow Christ; discipline your body; do not pamper yourself, but love fasting.”
—Saint Benedict
“If God has given you the world’s goods in abundance, it is to help you gain those of Heaven and to be a good example of sound teaching to your sons, servants, and relatives.”
—Saint Ignatius
“Fasting cleanses the soul, raises the mind, subjects one’s flesh to the spirit, renders the heart contrite and humble, scatters the clouds of concupiscence, quenches the fire of lust, and kindles the true light of chastity. Enter again into yourself.”
— St. Augustine
