THE FOURTH SUNDAY OF LENT – JOHN CLIMACUS – VENERABLE
Our Church reminds her fasting children that despite their natural weaknesses and passions they can become good Christians and perfect images of the Son of God. She points out the example of St. John Climacus (525-605), the saintly abbot of a monastery on Mount Sinai. He became an “angel” in human flesh through fasting and prayer. In following his example the faithful will attain a high degree of Christian perfection.

MARCH
The Patron for the month of March is St. John the Apostle. St. John was one of the most beloved apostles of Christ. His Gospel is a sublime book of Divine Love. He teaches us to love God with our whole heart.
Virtue: Love of God “I shall exercise myself in loving God with my whole heart, I will do everything, fulfill all my duties, accept all sufferings for the love of my God. In all circumstances of my life I will always repeat: ‘O my Dear God, I love You!”
Prayer: I shall pray every day that men may love God with their whole heart.
