Adult Education and Formation

Adult Education and Formation, Lent 2019

Hands
"The Reproach of Nathan and the Penance of King David" (Paris Psalter, folio 136v, 10th cent.)

The season of Lent is a penitential time in which the Church calls us to take stock of our lives. In doing so, we come to learn more and more what it looks like to choose the way of life offered in Christ. Are there loves that compete with our love for God? Are there spiritual practices we could introduce to deepen our relationships with others and ourselves? The Lenten journey presses these questions, even as we behold again and again the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. Flip over this card to see what St. Francis has to offer this Lent!
