On the 3rd, 4th, & 5th Sundays in Lent, those preparing for Baptism receive the Rite of Scrutiny. These prayers & blessings are intended to uncover & heal all that is weak, defective, or sinful in the hearts of the Elect (those to be baptized), & to strengthen all that is upright, strong and good. They deliver the Elect from the power of Satan and protect them in Christ Jesus. Let us pray for Tyler Hardtke, Amy Police and Dan Condol in these final weeks, that their hearts are open to the sacramental graces they will receive through Baptism (Tyler), Confirmation and First Eucharist (Tyler, Amy and Dan) as well as all who will be entering the Church at Easter.
