Diocesan Shrine of St. Peregrine Laziosi Patron Saint of Cancer Patients

Parochial Administrator's Lenten Message

Dear brothers, sisters, parishioners, pilgrims and devotees of St. Peregrine,

Lent is the time of spiritual preparation for the Easter season (cf. GRC 27). Lent starts with the celebration of Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Thursday. On the evening of Maundy Thursday, the sacred Triduum begins. The 40 days (excluding Sundays) of Lent corresponds to the 40 days that our Lord Jesus spent in the desert to fast, pray and to endure the testing of the devil (Mt. 4:2).

This year, we are celebrating the year of the Youth. As a pilgrim Church, we and the young people in our parish –shrine of St. Peregrine, would like to share this Lenten reflection message as beloved, gifted, and empowered children of God.

Beloved through prayer. We are beloved of God, that may we walk eagerly in that same charity of God, with which, out of love for the world, that Jesus handed himself over to death (cf Collect 5th Sunday of Lent). Jesus gave up his life for us, as for God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life (Jn 3:16). In prayer that we become closer to God and to see ourselves saved beloved by Him. Prayer bonds us to God. When we pray, we learn to feel God’s love in our hearts. Christian prayer, according to the catechism 2564, is a covenant relationship between God and man in Christ. When we pray, we open our hearts to Him and let His love fill out into our very being. 

Gifted through fasting. We are gifted because we received the greatest gift of God in our lives, Jesus Christ. Each of you should use whatever gift you received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms… so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ (cf. 1 Pt. 4:10-11). Fasting is willingness to abstain or to lessen of one’s intake of food to one full meal and not eating meat. In fasting, we see ourselves as we give up our earthly desires and focus more for our gift in order to help us to see our worthiness and value as children of God. As we fast, we acknowledge our giftedness through deeper conversion.

Empowered through almsgiving. We are empowered to witness the love of Jesus to the world. St. Paul reminds us that we can do all things through Jesus who strengthen us (cf Phil 4:13). Almsgiving is an empowering ourselves as living witnesses in this world. It is the love of God in the flesh. It empowers each one of us to love one another and to see the real needs of others.

This season of lent is an opportunity for us to nourish our spiritual life and to see ourselves once again as beloved, gifted, and empowered children of One Father through prayer, fasting and almsgiving .  For we have given as children a sacred time for renewing and purifying our hearts… as to hold to the things that eternally endure (Preface Lent 2).

In Christ,

Rev. Fr. Deogracias Ma. Alejandria, Jr. OSM

SEVEN HOLY FOUNDERS

FEBRUARY 17 – SEVEN HOLY FOUNDERS

In early documents, the Seven are rightly called “our parents” and “our fathers” because they initiated the Order of the Servants of Saint Mary. The Order grew rapidly in Tuscany and central Italy, spreading the light of the gospel and devotion to the Blessed Virgin.

Those who followed the Seven have always preferred to venerate them as a group, since they had been so united in fraternal love. In 1888, Pope Leo XIII canonized them as a group with the names Bonfilius, Bonajuncta, Manettus, Amadeus, Hugh, Sostene, and Alexis. At Monte Senario, one common grave brings together in death these men who were so united in fraternal life.
