LENT RESOURCES

As many readers know, my site has long provided free resources for personal and group use during Lent. This is a service to those who want to respond not only to Jesus’ suffering and death, but also to the unnecessary suffering and death within creation, where God lives and acts, and where we are intrinsically united with the whole.

These aids supplement Christians’ focus on Scripture and provide help to those concerned about the state of Earth, our common home. They follow the Scripture readings from the current liturgical season, taking cues from those readings as to which aspects of creation to highlight. 

Two resources are available for Lent 2019. One is

                                                spirituality.of.soil.lent.2019

This resource is intended to help individuals and groups deepen their appreciation of the precious and sacred gifts of fertile dirt, seeds, crops; trees, current threats to them; and how we can respond in faith. It includes suggestions for music and media.

 

In addition to the Soil resource, my Lent site includes a second option: 

laudato.si’.reflection.resource.

This resource focuses on Laudato Si’, Pope Francis’ encyclical highlighting the unity of all creation, current threats to it, relevant Scripture, causes of the problems, and potential solutions. Participants will read and pray with quotes from the document, discuss them and take actions. It, also, includes suggestions for music and media.

I am truly grateful to all those who have participated in these Lent experiences since they began in 2004. Thanks to their feedback, I have made many improvements. Your suggestions are welcome (terrishcj@aol.com).

  1. I greatly appreciate your affirmation, Mary. Laudato Si’ is my “best seller” and Spirituality of Soil was my first group resource, so it’s my eldest! I loved doing them and enjoy using them in groups. It’s heartening to think any of your very special community might use them.
