| During the weeks of Great Fast, the faithful reflect on and meditate over the public life of Jesus and especially on its culmination in his passion, death and burial.

|Prayer of the day||Jesus the Life of all, have mercy on me, Mary Magdalene cried before the sepulchre. She remembered You who made her the dwelling of Your love instead of the abode of the devils; she bought aromatic spices to make fragrant Your holy body, by which the odour of our mortal race has become sweet. O the good Lord, our Saviour, the Tree of Life, sprinkle us with the dew of Your mercy and make us participate the glory of Your Resurrection.|
| For Study, Reflection, Meditation, Celebration and Experimental Assimilation|
Mysteries of Jesus' Life, Passion, Death and Burial - He came to His own - they brought Him to the Cross - thickness and darkness of human sin - "Petratha" means a looking back - a salvific call to reconciliation - repair through prayer, penance and almsgiving.
Remembrance of dear Departed Ones
We enter Great Fast commemorating our Departed ones - let us continue to keep their memory all through this season through special prayer, penance and almsgiving, which are also the best means for our sanctification.
