St. Gabriel Catholic Church
Thank you for praying the following March Intentions:
In this season of Lent, let us open our hearts and pray …
• for the will to discipline ourselves by fasting and denial
• for a return to the sacrament of absolution and reconciliation
• for the grace to forgive our enemies and not pass judgment on others
• for generosity to those in need by practical almsgiving
• for those preparing for the Easter sacraments.
For our society, may we learn to be less critical of one another and more forgiving, and may we be ambassadors of reconciliation in our families, among our friends, and in our places of work … we pray!
For all people, may we be ever more aware of the limited resources of our planet and learn to conserve them for the good of all; and for farmers everywhere, may the coming growing season produce an abundant harvest … we pray!
