Today is the Feast of St. Joseph. The Bible pays Joseph the highest compliment: he was a “just” man. By saying Joseph was “just”, the Bible means that he was one who was open to all that God wanted to do for him. He became holy by opening himself totally to God. The just man was simply, joyfully, wholeheartedly obedient to God.

Let us pray.
Saint Joseph, guardian of Jesus you passed your life in loving fulfillment of duty.  You supported the holy family of Nazareth with the work of your hands.  Kindly protect those who trustingly come to you.  You know their aspirations, their hardships, their hopes.  They look to you because they know you will understand and protect them.  You too knew trial, labor and weariness.  But amid the worries of material life, your soul was full of deep peace. Assure those you protect that they do not labor alone.  Teach them to find Jesus near them and to watch over Him faithfully as you have done.  We ask this through Christ our Lord.     Amen.

Let us stand for prayer.
We remember in our prayers today those involved with The Blackfriars production.  St. Genesius is the patron saint of actors.  He was a pagan actor who performed in a series of plays that mocked Christianity. One day while acting in a work that made fun of baptism he realized Christianity was true, and had a conversion right on stage. He refused to renounce his new faith even when ordered to do so by emperor.

Let us pray.
Heavenly Father, your servant St Genesius, came to discover the truth of the Christian faith on the stage by the grace of the Holy Spirit and was willing to die rather than betray your convictions. We pray for those who dedicate their time to the arts, especially our Curley brothers. Like you, may they find the presence of the Lord in their work 
and generously open their hearts to his teaching even in the midst of the demands of life.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.  Amen

Lent offers us all a very special opportunity to grow in our relationship with God. In our busy world, Lent provides us with an opportunity to reflect upon our patterns, to pray more deeply, to experience sorrow for what we've done and failed to do, and to be generous to those in need.  Lent is a time to ask God to ask him to heal those divisions with grace.  We can do that by taking time to sit quietly in God’s presence.  Our chapel is an excellent place for reflection and prayer.  Be sure to take advantage of the gift that our chapel is to our school.  
Let us pray.
Lord, let everything we do this day and in this season of Lent be inspired by you.  May we be aware of those places in our lives where we are divided.  Help us to remember that nothing is important in our lives unless it glorifies you in some way.  Help us to rely on you for help in overcoming these divisions. Heal us, Lord, and help us to find you in the darkness and divisions of our lives. We ask this through Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Wednesday, March 5th – DAY FOUR

Let us stand for prayer.
Today is Ash Wednesday, our entry into the season of Lent.  We mark this time by prayer, fasting and almsgiving. The required fast involves eating of only one full meal.  The required fast does not allow eating anything between meals. The purpose of fasting is to experience the effects of not eating.  It also serves to be a penance or a sacrifice - for the purpose of strengthening us.  When we don't eat, for even a little while, we get hungry.  When we get hungry, we have a heightened sense of awareness.   It is purifying and prepares us to pray more deeply.  

Let us pray.
Dear Lord, as we begin this journey of Lent, may we be drawn into your journey to the cross.  May our sacrifices today bring us closer to you and to the mystery of your passion.  May our fasting bring us an awareness of what it is like to be hungry.  May it focus our prayer.  And may it help us enter into this journey of 40 days.  We ask this in the name of Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Please remember our benefactors: Mr. Richard A. Novotny, Mrs. Jane Oakjones, Mr. Paul F. Oberle, Mr. Robert E. Oberle, Mr. Craig O'Brien, Mr. Larry O'Connor, Mr. John Offerman, Mr. Chris Ogle and Mr. Michael W. Ogrysko.

Tuesday, March 4th – DAY THREE

Let us stand for prayer.
Mardi Gras, or "Fat Tuesday," has grown in popularity in recent years, but its roots lie in the Christian calendar, as the "last hurrah" before Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. During Lent we fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday and we abstain from meat on other Fridays. By giving something up helps us to share the suffering Christ endured for us

Let us pray.
Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation, for it is from your goodness that we have this day to celebrate on the threshold of the Season of Lent.  Tomorrow we will fast and abstain from meat. As our feasting fills us with gratitude so may our fasting and abstinence make a place in us for deeper desires and an attentiveness to hear the cry of the poor.  May our self-denial turn our hearts to you and give us a new freedom for generous service to others. We ask this with confidence in the name of Jesus the Lord.  Amen.

Please remember our benefactors, especially Mr. Patrick J. Nixon, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas J. Nocar Sr., Mr. and Mrs. James E. Noe, Mr. Michael J. Nohe, Mr. Howard Norris, Mr. Timothy B. Norris, Mr. and Mrs. Gerard F. Novak, Mr. Mark S. Novak and Mr. Ronald S. Novak.

Let us stand for prayer.
Since 1992, the Catholic Church has celebrated World Day of the Sick on Feb. 11 — the day on which the church commemorates the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. World Day of the Sick has three themes. First, it reminds the faithful to pray for those who are sick. Second, the celebration invites Christians to reflect on and respond to human suffering. And third, this day recognizes and honors all persons who work in health care.

Let us pray.
Lord, grant your healing grace to all who are sick, injured or disabled, that they may be made whole. Grant to all who through illness are lonely or anxious an awareness of your loving presence. Bless physicians, nurses and all others who minister to those suffering, granting them wisdom, skill, sympathy and patience.
Grant all who serve in the ministry of health care confidence, energy and courage to do the work to which they have been called. Help them to be models of encouragement so that others do not lose hope.
We also remember the family of freshman Trevor Bandoch, whose grandmother Veronica Bandoch has passed away.  We ask all this through Christ our Lord, Amen.

Today is the feast day of St. Peter Baptist and companions. Peter Baptist joined the Franciscans in 1567. He was a missionary to Mexico, the Philippines and Japan.

Let us pray.
Lord, help us not to cut others down because of how they look or what we might think of them.  Help us to see the inner brilliance of all in this school.  Help us with your grace today.  Help us to see through our own biases and reach out to our fellow student.  Inspire us to encourage others by what we say and do today.  We ask this through Christ, our Lord.  Amen.
