Friday, March 8

Hosea 14:2-10 Psalm 81 Mark 12:28-34 Throughout Sacred Scripture we continually read about the love of God. God’s love for us is beyond our imagining.

Pray Fervently for the Cardinal-Electors

SAINT ALPHONSUS LIGOURI (d. 1787) was keenly aware that a less than qualified, less than zealous pope could be elected.

Sacrament of Reconciliation

SIN is in a offense against God and fractures our relationship with Him. Neither is sin to be excused nor explained away lest the soul truly be in peril.
