Tuesday, Second Week of Lent (St. Katharine Drexel)
Blessed St. Katherine Drexel’s Day!
You can find her story here.
Here is a wise virgin, from among the number of the prudent,
who went forth with lighted lamp to meet Christ.
God of love,
You called St. Katharine Drexel
to teach the message of the Gospel
and to bring the life of the Eucharist
to the Native American and African American peoples
by her prayers and example,
enable us to work for justice
among the poor and oppressed,
and keep us undivided in love
in the eucharistic community of Your Church.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever. Amen.
Isaiah 1:10, 16-20 (let’s set things right)
Psalm 50:8-9, 16-17, 21, 23 “To the upright I will show the saving power of God”
Matthew 23:1-12 (leaders must be humble servants)
If I set things right
God will set things right
Nor can I blame
a bad example
from corrupt authority
when God has
To heed their words
despite their works
What needs can I realistically address in the lives of those around me?
Do I follow the divinely-protected teachings of the Church despite scandal?
