Scripture: "Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing. In all circumstances give thanks, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus."
(I Thessalonians 5: 16-18)
Mary's Words: "Do you say your prayers well, my children? You should say them well, at night and in the morning ... (people) go to Mass just to make fun of religion. In Lent they go to the butcher shops like dogs."
Meditation: The Virgin at La Salette questions us on the quality of those gestures of faith which link us to God, and serve as the source of our ongoing conversion. Each day, we are invited to express in prayer our free and constant dialogue with God. We remember the words of Jesus' own prayer: "Father ... not my will but yours be done." (Luke 22: 42) Each week, we are called to celebrate the Eucharist, the central memorial of the death and resurrection of Christ. The presence of the Risen Lord in our gathering revives our faith, and helps us wait in hope until he comes again.
Each year, our Lenten penance, prayer and sharing strengthens our faith. With renewed vigor, we give our lives to God daily in service to our sisters and brothers.
Prayer: Mary, first disciple of Jesus, make our lives a living prayer. May we always be ready to pray, to celebrate God's presence and to follow Jesus faithfully every day. Hold us close beside you in the heart of hte Church, ready to share the struggles and sufferings of all your people.

Invocation: Our Lady of La Salette, Reconciler of Sinners, pray without ceasing for us who have recourse to you.
