Our Prelate, Msgr Fernando Ocariz, recently sent a letter urging us to reflect on our spirit of detachment during Lent.
For the Year of St. Joseph, we bring this text from The Forge (#553):
Saint Joseph, our Father and Lord: most chaste, most pure. You were found worthy to carry the Child Jesus in your arms, to wash him, to hug him. Teach us to get to know God, and to be pure, worthy of being other Christs.
And help us to do and to teach, as Christ did. Help us to open up the divine paths of the earth, which are both hidden and bright; and help us to show them to mankind, telling our fellow men that their lives on earth can have an extraordinary and constant supernatural effectiveness.
