Fidelity to the Word
Our Lord and His Holy Apostles at the Last Supper

A blog dedicated to Christ Jesus our Lord and His True Presence in the Holy Mystery of the Eucharist

Make us, O Lord Jesus, whom thou refreshest with Thy heavenly sacraments, unceasingly to imitate the example of Thy holy Family, so that in the hour of our death, welcomed by Thy glorious Virgin Mother and blessed Joseph, we may be received by these into our everlasting home.

Second Sunday of Lent

1 Thessalonians 4:1-7

1For the rest therefore, brethren, we pray and beseech you in the Lord Jesus, that as you have received from us, how you ought to walk, and to please God, so also you would walk, that you may abound the more.

2For you know what precepts I have given to you by the Lord Jesus.

3For this is the will of God, your sanctification; that you should abstain from fornication;

4That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour:

5Not in the passion of lust, like the Gentiles that know not God:

6And that no man overreach, nor circumvent his brother in business: because the Lord is the avenger of all these things, as we have told you before, and have testified.

7For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto sanctification: in Christ Jesus our Lord.


Saint Philomena, virgin and Martyr, pray for us that through thy powerful intercession we may obtain that purity of mind and heart which leads to the perfect love of God. Amen.


Help us, O merciful God and source of all that is good, to love Thy creatures in due measure, honorably according to Thy will, and to love Thee above all that Thou hast created. We ask this through Christ our Lord, Who reigns with Thee in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever.
