Feast of the Presentation of the Lord

Prayer for the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord
All-powerful Father, Christ your Son became man for us and was presented in the temple. May he free our hearts from sin and bring us into your presence. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

Women of Faith, Women of Hope, Women of Love

"What is it missing in this modern world of ours, despite all its outward splendor, its technology and economic progress?....Nothing defines the condition of our time more profoundly and tragically than the total absence of all motherly dispositions.....It is that minimum of kindness, motherliness, mercy, sense of tact and tenderness which comes from woman as her contribution to the life of man."
Gertrud von le Fort

"I beg you, then, to respond with unspeakable love, to be a mirror of virtue in your station in life, so that you may act with a good and holy intent, and be a solid pillar and a faithful servant, and so that the standard of the most holy cross may never leave your mind and heart." St. Catherine of Siena
