Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. This, then, is how you should pray: Matthew 6, 9-14 BACK

  • CREATIVITY SHARING IS MOVED BY COMPASSION LIMITED ONLY BY ONE’S
  • ...And the disciples said: "Send the crowds away, so they can buy themselves some food." Jesus replied, "You give them something to eat." "We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish," they answered. "Bring them here to me," he said. Taking the five loaves and the two fish, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. They all ate and were satisfied. Matthew 14, 14-21 BACK END
  • LET US OPEN OUR EYES TO SEE OPEN OUR MINDS TO MEDITATE OPEN OUR HEARTS TO EMBRACE THOSE GOD PUTS BY OUR SIDE Have a joyful Lent.
