Goal: To Conquer Ourselves (Thursday, 4th Week of Lent)

COLLECT

 

Presta quaesumus, omnipotens Deus, 

ut quos jejunia votiva castigant,
ipsa tiori quoque devotio sancta laeti-
ficet: ut, terrenis affectibus mitigatis,
facilius coelestia capiamus. Per Christum
Dominum nostrum. Amen

 

(Translation)

Grant, we beseech thee, Almighty God, 

that the devotion which makes us punish
ourselves by this yearly fast, may also
make us rejoice; to the end that, suppressing
in ourselves all earthly affections, we may
more easily receive thy heavenly inspirations.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen

 

("The Liturgical Year", Thursday of the Fourth Week of Lent, p. 376

By The Very Rev. Dom Prosper Guéranger, Abott of Solesmes, 1868)

It is a pious tradition to stay silent [don't speak if your daily permits] from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Good Friday, to better reflect on the Crucifixion & Death of Our Blessed Lord.

Yes, and chose the name Gregory XVII. He had no need whatsoever to be "elected" at any future conclave(s), nor could be. His sorrowful reign "in eclipse" lasted from October 26th, 1958 until May 2, 1989.
