THE FOURTH SUNDAY OF THE GREAT FAST IN THE UKRAINIAN CATHOLIC CHURCH

The Fourth Sunday of Lent is dedicated to St. John Climacus, the author of the work: The Ladder of Divine Ascent.  St. John was an abbot at St. Catherine’s Monastery on Mount Sinai in the sixth century and warns us to be very careful because even bishops can fall from the ladder to heaven and end up in hell.  His work encourages the faithful to persevere in their efforts; for, according to the Lord, only “he who endures to the end will be saved;” (Matthew 24:13).

A Lenten Prayer

O gracious Master, infuse in our hearts the spotless light of Your Divine Wisdom and open the eyes of our mind that we may understand the teachings of Your Gospel. Instill in us also the fear of Your blessed commandments, so that having curbed all carnal desires, we may lead a spiritual life, both thinking and doing everything to please You. For You, O Christ, our God, are the enlightenment of our souls and bodies; and to You we render glory, together with Your eternal Father, and with Your all holy, life-creating Spirit, now and ever, and forever.

SANCTUARY LIGHT:  The Sanctuary Light is requested by Ann Beshada for a Special Intention.

FOOD FESTIVAL: SS Cyril & Methodius Ukrainian Catholic Church, Berwick, PA will sponsor a Food Festival and Bake Sale on Sunday April 3, 2022 at 1:00 PM. Anyone who would like to donate any baked goods, it will be greatly appreciated.  All proceeds will be sent to the Ukraine. 

A Prayer for Ukraine

God of peace and justice,
we pray for the people of Ukraine today.
We pray for peace and the laying down of weapons.
We pray for all those who fear for tomorrow,
that your Spirit of comfort would draw near to them.
We pray for those with power over war or peace,
for wisdom, discernment and compassion to guide their decisions.
Above all, we pray for all your precious children, at risk and in fear,
that you would hold and protect them.
We pray in the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace.
Amen
