FIFTH TUESDAY OF LENT Saint Hilarion the New, Abbot, 8th Cent.

LITURGICAL THEME FOR THE DAY:  Saint Hilarion took up the monastic life from his youth and lived in seclusion. Later, as Abbot of the Monastery of Pelecete in Asia Minor (believed to be in Bithynia, not far from Triglia), he suffered much from the Iconoclasts, and reposed in the year 754.

BIBLICAL MEDITATION OF THE DAY:  The lesson from Romans today remind us again that God activates faith in the heart of those open to him and that the Holy Spirit is active in performing this work. This acting of the Spirit causes the us to testify to the truth of Jesus Christ and His resurrection and should create in us a desire to share this good news with all! This causes a change in our station in life as we become the  workmen of God, laboring to see others saved. This should give us great hope and encouragement in our efforts to offer a witness to  the world this Lenten tide because God’s word will accomplish that which He desires to accomplish. No seed is sown in vain; i

PRAYER OF THE DAY: “Father, as we diligently labor for you it is not to bring attention to ourselves, but it is to bring glory to your name and further the kingdom of God.  Help us to find our place of Christian service where we can develop our gifts and expend our labors for building up the body of Christ.  Amen.  ANCIENT WISDOM/PRESENT GRACE: This grace is so excellent that neither the gift of prophecy, nor the working of miracles, nor even the most sublime speculation, is worth anything without it.” Thomas a Kempis, Imitation of Christ, Book II, Chapter 55.

Lenten DisciplineAs Christians we are painfully aware that nearly 1 billion people suffer needlessly without access to safe water. Part of our vocation is to work to change that. The Water Project is digging wells in five countries in Africa, and you can help by either making a direct donation or organize a fundraiser at home, work or church.
