Your merciful Savior has been waiting for you in the Sacrament of Confession, eager to embrace you once again! You may have sinned against Him, but His love for you never died. Instead, Christ voluntarily died on the cross to give power to this Sacrament of forgiveness. Come back now with all your heart, and everyone in heaven will rejoice because you were always meant to be one of them!

N.B. Dominican priests are available to hear confessions daily at Santísimo Rosario Parish - UST, Monday to Saturday, at 6:30am and 5:30pm.

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of #Lent, a forty-day period to prepare ourselves for the commemoration of the Paschal Mystery (the sacred passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus).

...like the hypocrites. They neglect their appearance, so that they may appear to others to be fasting. Amen, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, so that you may not appear to be fasting, except to your Father who is hidden. And your Father who sees what is hidden will repay you."

#AshWednesday (this year, February 14) marks the beginning of the holy season of #Lent. By marking our foreheads with ash, we are reminded of our own mortality. No matter how powerful, rich, or influential we may have become, nobody lives forever. At the height of man's pride, man is reminded that without God he is nothing. Man's every breath is but an extension of God's mercy. We are nothing but dust and to dust we shall return (cf. Gen 3:19).
.
As in the Old Testament, the act of putting ash on one's head is a public admission of one's sinfulness, repentance, and need of God's forgiveness.
.
FASTING & ABSTINENCE
. 
These are acts of penance offered in reparation for our sins. We are also called to spend on works of mercy (e.g. donate to charity, feeding programs for the poor, etc.) whatever money or resources we save from fasting and abstinence. It is necessary to educate ourselves about these things, so that we may perform them in a genuine spirit of penance.
.
#FASTING means eating only one (1) full meal and, when necessary, two (2) smaller meals, in one day. These smaller meals, when combined, must not be more than the full meal. Fasting applies to all Catholics aged 14 to 59. It is observed on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and on any other day in which a person wishes to offer God this penance.
.
#ABSTINENCE means avoiding meat (from pig, chicken, cows, sheep, etc.) Sea food is not prohibited; nevertheless in choosing our food we must consider always the genuine spirit of penance. Abstinence applies to all Catholics aged 14 and above. It is observed on ALL FRIDAYS OF LENT, and on other days in which a person wishes to offer this penance.
.
In both instances, the sick, elderly, the pregnant, laborers (generally, those whose health, medical condition, or nature of work requires full meals or consumption of meat) may be excused. The Church does not intend these people to jeopardize their health; nevertheless, they are called to perform other acts of penance and works of mercy.

Gracious God, you called our brother Jordan to the preaching of the gospel, by which he drew many to the apostolic way of life. Help us to preach the way of salvation faithfully and so proclaim the kingdom of Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

#Lent2018 #AshWednesday #SantisimoRosarioUST #DominicansPH
The holy and penitential season of #Lent starts on #AshWednesday, February 14, 2018. During this time, our Holy Mother Church invites us, amidst the busy world, to step back and take a look at our spiritual well-being (and by that, we mean our relationship with Jesus and His 
Church).
.
Lent is a great opportunity to assess where we are in our spiritual journey, to examine our hearts, and to see how close to or how far we've gotten from Jesus. Now is the time to repent, to come back to our senses, and to realize that without Him we are nothing. He is love itself, and He is all we need in this life and the next.
.
Like the forgiving father in the Parable of the Prodigal Son (Lk 15:11-32), God eagerly awaits our return most especially in the Sacraments of Reconciliation (Confession) and the Holy Eucharist (Mass).

God of all riches, with the aid of the Mother of Mercy you called Blessed Reginald to a life of gospel poverty and granted him power to persuade others to embrace religious life. By his prayers guide our steps in the way of your Word, so that with hearts enkindled we may run in the way of your commandments. Grant this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
