Lent: March 24th
Third Sunday of Lent
O God, author of every mercy and of all goodness, who in fasting, prayer and almsgiving have shown us a remedy for sin, look graciously on this confession of our lowliness, that we, who are bowed down by our conscience, may always be lifted up by your mercy. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Oh Dios, autor de toda misericordia y de toda bondad, que en el ayuno, la oración y la limosna nos han mostrado un remedio para el pecado, mira con gracia esta confesión de nuestra humildad, para que nosotros, quienes somos inclinados por nuestra conciencia, siempre podamos ser Levantado por tu misericordia. A través de nuestro Señor Jesucristo, tu Hijo, que vive y reina contigo en la unidad del Espíritu Santo, un solo Dios, por los siglos de los siglos.

Today in Ordinary Time...
Liturgy of the Hours-"Praying the Breviary"
"Seven times a day I praise you, because your judgments are righteous." PS 119:164
“From ancient times the Church has had the custom of celebrating each day the liturgy of the hours. In this way the Church fulfills the Lord’s precept to pray without ceasing, at once offering its praise to God the Father and interceding for the salvation of the world.”
