 Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends,

Lent is a time of deep reflection, allowing us to repent and come closer in our relationship with Christ. This past Saturday, the Gospel for daily Mass was the Prodigal Son. So is the message of the parable of the Prodigal Son this: No matter how irresponsible you are, no matter what you’ve done, God will take you back. God will say: Everything is okay now. We’ll pretend it never happened? Yes and no. Yes, God will always take back with open arms anyone who returns to Him with even a little humility and contrition: “A broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not reject” (Psalm 51:17). And no because when we sin, we need to ask God for His forgiveness. This is also why we, as Catholics, receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation during Lent. We are extremely grateful that many of our students will receive God’s grace through this Sacrament this week. Please join Bishop Barron’s daily Lenten reflections by signing up at http://www.lentreflections.com.

Ms. Michelle Limb, Principal

During the upcoming weeks, I encourage you to prayerfully read through the Stations of the Cross as a family.

Station Seven: Jesus Falls the Second Time

Station Eight: Jesus Meets the Women

Station Nine: Jesus Falls the Third Time

Can God fall, a mighty God,
whose hands uphold all that is?
By Your second fall, O Lord,
remember how weak we are,
remember our helplessness,
remember our human frailty,
and come to our assistance.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be

Women wept as You passed
and You said, "Weep not for me
but for your children."
Keep the grace of this meeting
alive in our hearts, Lord.
Keep us concerned
for humanity's children.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be

Like water poured out,
Your strength is gone.
You fall as if to the dust of death.
By Your third fall, O Lord,
give us courage before our trials
and patience to go on.
Help us in our need.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be

St. Raphael, Pray for Us!
