Second Week of Lent
Enteral God, in whom mercy is endless, and the treasury of compassion is
inexhaustible. Look kindly upon your servants who continue their Lenten
journey. Bless our families and our Community. Bless our Church and our
Nation. And Bless this food that is the work of our hands.
First Week of Lent
Dear Father in heaven, this Holy Season of Lent that you have given us
speaks to our daily struggles and sorrow’s, showing us, as followers of
Jesus Christ, how to answer all life’s troubles. Our answer is found in
the mystery of the death and resurrection of your Son and our Savior,
O Lord, help each one of us this Lenten Season to embrace the mystery
of your Son. May this Season of renewal transform us as individuals
and as a community of believers. Please bless this food that has been
created by You and prepared with human hands.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Week of Ash Wednesday
As this Season of Lent unfolds, you invite us to return to you and
walk in your presence. Bless our community and our family, enable us to
reflect on your love that is present in the Sacraments of the Church.
Also, bless this meal we have prepared with our hands and may it nourish
our bodies as you nourish our souls.
