LENTCAzT 2022 – 02: “Give back some of God’s gifts to God, that you may safely enjoy the rest.”

The next daily 5 minute podcasts for Lent.  They are intended to encourage you in this holy season.

Collect: S. Nicola in Carcere – Station: San Giorgio in Velabro

Today: A thought from St. John Henry Newman about adjusting our lives during Lent in anticipation of our judgment and the life to come. Also, the “Prayer over the People” on weekdays of Lent developed in a very dark time for the early Roman Church. We hear the echoes of those days today.

Emendémus in mélius, quæ ignoránter peccávimus: ne, subito præoccupáti die mortis, quærámus spátium pæniténtiæ, et inveníre non póssimus. Atténde, Dómine, et miserére: quia peccávimus tibi,
Adiuva nos, Deus, salutáris noster: et propter honórem nóminis tui, Dómine, líbera nos. Atténde, Dómine,
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, et Spirítui Sancto. Atténde, Dómine.
Memento, homo, quia pulvis es, et in púlverem revertéris.

Let us amend for the better in those things in which we have sinned through ignorance: lest suddenly overtaken by the day of death, we seek space for penance, and are not able to find it. Hear O Lord, and have mercy: for we have sinned against thee.
Help us, O God, our saviour: and for the glory of thy name, O Lord, deliver us: and forgive us our sins for thy name’s sake: O Lord deliver us. Listen, O Lord.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost. Listen, O Lord.
Remember, man, that you are dust and into dust you shall return.
