Perseverance Through Suffering: Four Lenten Reflections

February 26, 2020

I’m pleased to announce our next study, four Lenten reflections on Perseverance Through Suffering, will begin the week of March 10. This is a series for anyone who has experienced pain and loss – which is to say, everyone.

The plan of the study is to take the first two weeks to gather around the Scriptures and hear what the Old and New Testaments have to teach us about suffering: not only how to endure, but how to conquer. In the third week, we’ll read together a selection of martyrdom accounts from the ancient Church, to see how the earliest Christians weathered state-sponsored persecution and laid down their lives in imitation of Christ. Finally, in our fourth week, we will look at the Catholic doctrine of reparation – ever wonder what the Church actually teaches about “offering it up”? We’ve got the answers.

I hope you can join us for one or all sessions. This will be not so much a lecture series as a collection of talks on related themes – meaning that if you have to miss a week, you can pick right up again when you come back without playing catch-up. This is also going to be a little more reflective, less classroomy than our studies on books of the Bible, with plenty of opportunities to ask questions and share.
