The Stational Church for the Saturday in the 2nd Week of Lent

If you haven't started to join me in praying each day this devotion, please do so. Every lent there are many pilgrims that journey throughout Rome to different Catholic churches. This devotion began over 1500 years ago, and today even though we can't physically be there, we can join the pilgrims spiritually. Please begin praying the Stational Churches.

Today's station is at the Church of Sts. Marcellinus & Peter

"This Station is in the basilica founded by St. Helen on the Via Lavicana, in which were buried the bodies of St. Marcellinus, priest, and St. Peter, exorcist, martyred at Tome during the Diocletian persecution. Their names are mentioned in the Roman Canon of the Mass.

"May today's stational saints, not brothers in the flesh, but in spirit, obtain for us the gift of gratitude both for our holy calling—God's free gift—as well as for the grace of conversion, our homecoming to the Father. For the remainder of our life may "the unspotted law of the Lord, which converts souls, and the testimonies of our faithful Lord fill us with such wisdom that we shall show forth the glory of God, and declare the works of His hands."

"Let us pray: Grant, we beseech Thee, O Lord, a saving virtue to our fast; that the chastisement of the flesh, which we have taken upon us may bestow new life to our souls. Through Christ, Our Lord. Amen. "
