Wednesday, March 15 - Jer 18:18-20
Ps 31:5-6, 14-16 - Matt 20:17-28
T.S. Eliot wrote in "Murder in the Cathedral":
"the greatest treason is to do the right thing for
the wrong reason." Christians probably do more
right things than any other group in the world.
However, we are constantly tempted to do the
right things with mixed motives. We love God,
but not with our whole hearts. We love the
Church, the poor, and the sick, but our
selfishness still influences us. We often
control the sinful desires of the flesh, but we
stop short of crucifying our "flesh" with its
passions and desires."
Father, make me single-hearted.
Thursday, March 16 - Jer 17:5-10
Ps 1:1-4, 6 - Luke 16: 19-31
Because the human heart is deceitful
and beyond remedy we should:
-give our hearts to the Lord who alone probes
the mind and tests the heart.
-receive a new heart thru baptism and live it out
-go to confession frequently to prevent our
hearts from becoming hardened.

of him, they would be prompted to think
Saturday, March 18 - St. Cyril of Jerusalem
St. Cyril, though exile more than once, faithfully
pastored his flock. His lessons to new converts
written in the fourth century, survive today
and have led the Church to proclaim Cyril
as a Doctor of the Church.
Sunday, March 19 - Ex 17:3-7 - Rom 5:1-2,5-8
Ps 95:1-2, 6-9 - John 4:5-42
The Samaritan woman teaches us that when
we drink fully of the water Jesus offers,
we will be so filled with living water, that
we won't be able to stop telling others
Jesus immerse me in Your living waters.
Monday, March 20 - St. Joseph
St. Joseph is the patron of the Church.
St. Joseph calls us to obedience. He was
constantly thrown into circumstances
that called for blind heroic trust in God.
He loved his foster Son, Jesus, and his
spouse, Mary. His concern was of the
protection of the family.
St. Joseph, help us to love
the Church, to love Jesus and Mary,our
family, with heroic love as you did.
Tuesday, March 21 - Dan 3:25, 34-43
Ps 25:4-9 - Matt 18:21-35
God first taught His way to His people
by giving them His Ten Commandments.
God's next step was to send Jesus as
a Teacher to teach us His ways. The
lesson "is finished." Now it's time for
the final exam in the heat of the Lenten
desert, to see if you are sincere to
follow the narrow path and pass the

The Children of Mary currently has 12 sisters. Our Motherhouse is located in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati under Archbishop Dennis Schnurr. Our charism is to
satiate the Thirst of Jesus to be loved in the Most Blessed Sacrament. The Heart of Jesus is most wounded by the indifference of people toward His
presence with us in the Holy Eucharist. He thirsts to be loved in the Most Blesses Sacrament, because we become like that which we love---and He longs
for us to be one with Him. He calls us as members of Children of Mary to tell His people that He loves them and is with them. We proclaim this message
first and foremost by our reverent participation in Holy Mass and loving and adoring Him in the Eucharist, which brings much grace to us and to the world.
We proclaim it by faithfully following the Rule and by living lives of virtue and charity towards all people. We proclaim it by spreading the truths of the Faith.
THE CHILDREN OF MARY WILL BE HERE, AT HOLY NAME, ON SUNDAY, MARCH 26, FROM 2:00-4:00PM FOR 2 HOURS OF ADORATION AND
RELEXION. WON'T YOU MAKE THIS A LENTEN MINI-RETREAT?
