    TUESDAY IN THE THIRD WEEK OF LENT Station—St. Prudentiana The church of St. Prudentiana, on the Viminal Hill, was one of the most venerated places for Roman Christians. St. Prudentiana lived here with her sister, St. Praxedes. Here, St. Peter received hospitality and the first Christians often assembled. Today, this church stands rather forgotten because it was closed for a very long time. We turn to St. Prudentiana on this day. May she obtain for us by her powerful prayers: 1. The grace of mutual forgiveness, so that we may be able to say in truth: "Forgive us our trespasses,...

Our spiritual life will take on a freshness, like...

    THIRD SUNDAY OF LENT Station—St. Lawrence Outside the Walls The stational Mass brings us to another basilica, St. Lawrence Outside the Walls, erected by the Emperor Constantine in the year 330. As the basilica is near the Verano cemetery and above ancient catacombs, where the bodies of the martyred St. Lawrence, St. Stephen and St. Justin were laid to rest, the penitential character of the Lenten Station takes on particular significance. On this day, the catechumens of old were taken to the tomb of St. Lawrence, the illustrious deacon whose "eyes were ever towards the Lord." Today, they had to...
