To you who pray Blessed Marie-Léonie,

The year 2024 is already in our daily lives, and the same intentions preoccupy us as in previous years: peace in the world, welcoming and respecting differences, sharing with the less fortunate, justice and safeguarding the reputation of others. Since the raison d'être of our prayer group is to pray for priests, let's redouble our efforts to support them in their ministry. Let's participate according to our talents in parish gatherings, so that each Christian community is a place where all the above-mentioned values are lived out.

I found this reflection on the Internet that I'd like to share with you:

RESPECT is much more than a word. Respect cannot be pronounced; it must be demonstrated. Respect is sincerity, consistency and loyalty. It's looking at others as you would look at yourself, in the same way. If you've suffered and you know what that means, don't make others suffer. If you've been disappointed, don't disappoint. If you've been hurt, don't hurt...

It's a good reflection to extend during the Lenten season to actualize in each of our lives these values that will increase our self-esteem, change our view of others and make us like what Christ Jesus lived and taught.

In the holy season of Lent, let us stand in solidarity with Christ in the Pascal ascent. May Christ's resurrection be a light in our lives, giving us strength, courage, patience and self-sacrifice in our physical and moral health problems.

May the Risen Christ be our joy, our reason for living together.
