Celebrate the Holy Spirit this week

The Pentecost sequence is one of the most beautiful poems in the liturgy. Remind yourself how close the Holy Spirit is to you — inside you, beside you, on your side — by praying a part of the sequence every day this week. You can download it here or click on the image below. You will come to Pentecost Sunday full of hope and ready to follow the Spirit’s urgings.


During the summer months visit goodgroundpress.com for daily prayers and a variety of online retreats.

St. Patrick’s Prayer

15 Mar


Patrick was kidnapped when he was 16, enslaved until he was 22, became a priest, but not one his bishop appreciated much, and was sent to wild and untamed Ireland to witness to the Gospel. Many of us find a home in the Catholic Church because of Patrick. Pray his breastplate prayer below to celebrate his feast day. Remember, as far back as you can, the hearts of all who love you.
 

Christ be with me, Christ within me


Christ behind me, Christ before me
Christ beside me, Christ to win me
Christ to comfort me and restore me.
Christ beneath me, Christ above me
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger


Christ in hearts of all that love me
Christ in mouth of friend or stranger.

(390-461 AD)

Happy Mardi Gras!

5 Mar

Mardi Gras means Fat Tuesday. In years past people didn’t eat meat for all of Lent, so this was their last chance to fry pancakes in bacon fat. We have gone beyond that small feast to all-out parties and carnivals.

Margaret Murray, CSJ, from the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet Los Angeles province, gives us thoughts on feasting and fasting to take into Lent. May they be a blessing to you.


 

This Lent we read from Luke’s Gospel with his stories of forgiveness, compassion, and second chances. Sister Joan’s new book is ideal for faith-sharing groups, Bible study, RCIA, homilists, and anyone who wants to understand scripture better. Only $10!

Order online at goodgroundpress.com or call us at 800-232-5533.
