This is a syndicated post from Divine Office - Liturgy of the Hours of the Roman Catholic Church. [Read the original article...]
“The Lord asks us to be joyous heralds of this message of mercy and hope! It is thrilling to experience the joy of spreading this good news, sharing the treasure entrusted to us, consoling broken hearts and offering hope to our brothers and sisters experiencing darkness. It means following and imitating Jesus, who sought out the poor and sinners as a shepherd lovingly seeks his lost sheep. In union with Jesus, we can courageously open up new paths of evangelization and human promotion.” (Today’s quote from Pope Francis’ Lenten message)
The Ministry of Divine Office, in it’s 6 years of existence, has worked to bring people together in prayer, to make the Liturgy of the Hours a daily prayer for so many. We are thankful to have helped build a community and proud that our work is carried out by it’s members. Pope Francis’ message is an inspiration to carry on this work, because together “we can courageously open up new paths of evangelization and human promotion.”
Join us and share your thought with others, so we can all draw inspiration from each other, on how we can prepare our hearts, minds and bodies in the Lenten journey toward Easter.
This is a journey none of us should walk alone. We all can help those who need to intensify their prayer life. We offer a bit of help: Divineoffice app is discounted 25% until Ash Wednesday. Here: divine-office.com
