Lenten Reflection Guide 2020

Join us for prayer this Lent!

This year, the Lent Guide from MOGC focuses on the topic of "ecological conversion."  Pope Francis defines ecological conversion as occurring when “the effects of [our] encounter with Jesus Christ become evident in [our] relationship with the world around [us]…We come to realize that a healthy relationship with creation is one dimension of overall personal conversion, which entails the recognition of our errors, sins, faults, and failures, and leads to heartfelt repentance and desire to change.”  

This Lent, we invite you to reflect on your relationships with God, neighbor, and all creation. We will explore the interconnection of these relationships, consider how they are broken and in need of healing, and reflect on how God calls us to repentance and renewal on the journey towards the joy of Easter.
