LENTCAzT 2021: 05 – 1st Sunday of Lent: “Our Sire God being first served.”

For Lent I offer daily 5 minute podcasts.  They are intended to give you a small boost every day, a little encouragement in your own use of this holy season.  The Roman Station today is St. John Lateran.

Today is 1st Sunday of Lent. Plan to GO TO CONFESSION!

Fr. Troadec talks about great figures who guide us during Lent and what Lent is for.

I provide these especially in gratitude to benefactors who help me and this blog.

    Father Z, your daily history lesson about each station sparked an interest for further research. I found two additional resources others might enjoy. First is The Pontifical North American College’s The Roman Station Liturgy guide. Second (and the one you might enjoy) is The Catholic Traveler’s The Lenten Station Churches of Rome which is updated daily with a video of the church recorded by The Catholic Traveler and his daughters.

    O Saint Joseph,
    I present to you this day Father Zuhlsdorf, priest of Jesus Christ,
    and beg you to be to him advocate and defender, counselor and friend.
    Open your heart to him as you opened your home to the Virgin Mother
    in her hour of need. Protect his holy priesthood as you protected the life
    of the Infant Christ threatened by cruel Herod.

    In darkness bring him light; in weakness, strength, and in fear the peace
    that surpasses understanding.

    For the sake of the tender love that bound you to the Virgin Mary
    and the Infant Christ, be for him, Saint Joseph, a constant intercessor
    and a shield against every danger of body, mind, and soul so that,
    in spite of his weaknesses and sins, his priesthood may bring glory
    to Christ and serve to increase the beauty of holiness
    in his bride the Church.
