Thursday of the Fourth Week of Lent

A Great Idea and Suggestion…

During these very challenging days and weeks, many people have written in appreciation for the daily message from Pope Francis. One person wrote us with a great idea which we are passing along.

After she receives her daily message from Pope Francis, she takes the time to call a relative who does not have access to email, and she reads the daily message to her over the phone.

We thought this was a touching and very loving way to share the message and to reach out to those who may feel particularly isolated during these difficult days.

We’re passing along this idea, since we know there are so many people in need of a human voice and a consoling message. A small gesture, perhaps, but something most could do in this time of great powerlessness and vulnerability.

On Sunday, Pope Francis prayed for an end to the Coronavirus pandemic at this Crucifix at the Church of San Marcello al Corso. It was transported to St. Peter’s Square to be present Friday during the Pope’s benediction “Urbi et Orbi.” The Crucifix was seen as miraculous after it was the only religious image to survive untouched by a fire that completed destroyed the church on May 23, 1519.


Thursday of the Fourth Week of Lent
Psalm 106

Remember us, O Lord, as you favor your people.
Our fathers made a calf in Horeb
and adored a molten image;
They exchanged their glory
for the image of a grass-eating bullock.
Remember us, O Lord, as you favor your people.
They forgot the God who had saved them,
who had done great deeds in Egypt,
Wondrous deeds in the land of Ham,
terrible things at the Red Sea.
Remember us, O Lord, as you favor your people.
Then he spoke of exterminating them,
but Moses, his chosen one,
Withstood him in the breach
to turn back his destructive wrath.
Remember us, O Lord, as you favor your people.

Blessings from Team MISSIO!
