Homily: Friday of the Third Week of Lent

This morning, Fr. Pat Earl reflects upon today's readings: Hosea 14:2 | Mark 12:28-34. He observes that prophecy is about "helping us come to know God's inner life; God's deep desires for us" and that "we are called to be prophets in our world." Listen to his full homily below:



We also invite you to pray together as a community today for inner peace:

A Prayer for Inner Peace

Lord, please put Your peace in my heart. I'm worried and anxious. My mind races and obsesses. I can't help thinking about my problems. And the more I think about them, the more depressed I become. I feel like I'm sinking down in quicksand and can't get out. Calm me, Lord. Slow me down, put Your peace in my heart. No matter what problem I have, Lord, You are bigger, You are more powerful than it is. So I bring my problem to You. I know what I want. I know my will. I do not know Yours. I do not know how You will use this problem for my salvation. I do not know what good You will workout from this evil. But I trust You. I trust Your goodness and Your wisdom. So I place myself in Your hands. Please fill my heart with peace. —Author Unknown
