21.   Cardinal Rosalio Jose Lara Castillo, S.D.B.

"I solemnly tell you that you must daily consecrate yourself to the Holy Spirit."

      Those words come from the Blessed Virgin Mary in her 402st Message to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart on Our Lady's birthday in September, 1993 in which Our Lady reinforces the need to trust in her Divine Spouse the Holy Spirit in our constant struggle with the world, the flesh and the devil. She follows this up 3 days later in Message 403 with the same encouragement. For these two Messages, click on "I SOLEMNLY TELL YOU..."

      This weekend we complete the second part of the Prayer at the Beginning of Lent from the Lenten Missalette:

Grant us a season of good and honest laor. Prosper the work of our hands, and support us when our efforts fail. Whether at the first hour or at the eleventh hour, may all enter into this privileged time of prayer, fasting, and the sharing of charity. We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

      Sunday is the 486th anniversary of the death of Pope Julius II, 216th successor of Peter and the pontiff who completed the Basilica of St. Peter's including the magestic dome designed by Michelangelo.
