God of power and mercy,

you destroy war and put down earthly pride.

Banish violence from our midst and wipe away our tears,

that we may all deserve to be called your sons

      and daughters.

Keep in your mercy those men and women

who have died in the cause of freedom

and bring them safely

into your kingdom of justice and peace.

We ask this though Jesus Christ our Lord.

May 13: Our Lady of Fatima

our-lady-fatima-w-gold-frame-7x10-2222926 (2)Today is the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima. Much has been documented on these approved apparitions that took place in Portugal in 1917. Pope Francis encourages us to nurture devotion to Our Lady of Fatima, especially in these difficult times. To read the Pope’s message, visit Vatican News .

“O God, who chose the Mother of your Son to be our Mother also, grant us that, persevering in penance and prayer for the salvation of the world, we may further more effectively each day the reign of Christ.”

From the collect of the Mass on the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima.

Announcement on Store Hours

The COVID-19 virus continues to impact all our lives to some degree.  We at The Paschal Lamb have made decisions on an almost daily basis regarding how to best serve our customers while providing a safe environment for anyone who enters our store.

Beginning on Monday, March 23, we will reduce our hours of operation to 3 hours a day, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.  We are not sure how long we will maintain that schedule so we ask you to ALWAYS CALL THE STORE BEFORE COMING (703-273-5956).  Currently we are well-stocked with seasonal items such as cards, books and gifts for Easter, RCIA, and First Holy Communion.  And don’t forget to pick up your Magnificat for April and May.

Let’s take Jesus’ words to heart and “Be Not Afraid”.  With our eyes on the Lord and with the intercession of our Blessed Mother we will get through this crisis.  You are all in our prayers.

God bless,
The Staff at The Paschal Lamb
