Written for busy individuals but easily adapted for groups, each day includes a scripture reading and a reflection upon it, some questions to aid prayer and discussion, and relevant quotes from Pope Francis.
The Spirit and the Cross will nourish and nurture prayer each day during Lent and into the first week of Easter.
The daily reflections will invite the reader to contemplate a verse from the Scripture reading of the day. This reflection will be followed by a quote from Pope Francis and a simple prayer.
The daily reflections will only require a few minutes for a person to read, reflect and pray. This Lenten practice will lead the reader into a deeper reflection on their daily life. As they ‘look to Jesus’ – in their families, workplaces and the community – they will walk as ‘missionary disciples’ on the path to Easter, and beyond.
