A unique collection of prayers and reflections. In this edition, we mark the birthdays of Blessed Federic Ozanam and St Vincent de Paul. We have included a special prayer for Frederic and Vincent. We also continue our preparations for the holiest period in the Christian calendar, Lent through to Easter. In doing so, we open our hearts and minds to our relationships with one another, our relationship with the Lord, and also think about how we have lived out and advocated his message.
