Lent Time

1) Opening prayer

God’s covenant with humanity
Mary’s yes and our yes
Luke 1,26-38

1. Opening prayer

Merciful Father, in this holy time of prayer and of listening to your Word, send also to me your holy angel that I may receive the proclamation of salvation and that, after opening my heart, I may offer my yes to Love. Let, I beg you, the Holy Spirit overshadow me as an overwhelming power. As from now, Father, I do not wish to express anything other than my “Yes!” and to say to you: “Behold, I am here for you. Do unto me whatever pleases you”. Amen.

These three fundamental elements of the charism are not distinct and unrelated values, but closely interwoven.
