THIRD SUNDAY OF LENT
1. How precious is the virtue of poverty! Christ preferred poverty to riches. When He came upon earth He chose a poor father and mother.
2. If thou hast riches, do not attach thy heart to them, but follow the example of Jesus and Mary.
O Mary, my good Mother, on earth thou didst love no other good than God. Draw me to thyself, cause me to die entirely to the world, that I may love Him alone, Who alone deserves to be loved, Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Let us pray that through our Blessed Mother we may obtain the virtue of poverty.
Resolve carefully to avoid all occasions of sin.
The man who presumes, will certainly fail. It is better to fly a thousand times, than be once overcome.
Be to us, O Mary, a tower of strength against
the face of the enemy
