Lent 2021

In addition to the regular events on our calendar, occasional reflections will be added during the season of Lent. Daily mass is available for online participation throughout the season and a number of retreats are offered.

Being Lifted Up

Mike Drennan SJ describes how the seeds of the passion were present from early on in the Gospel narratives.
Scripture texts are noted though this presentation with some questions and texts for further reflection offered at the end:

Seekers and Searchers

Transfiguration

Piaras Jackson considers the gospel of the second Sunday of Lent. Lingering with Mark's account of the Transfiguration (Mark 9:2-10), he reflects on what it means to hear this gospel inland in this time of pandemic when we the "Lenten" experiences of restriction and self-denial have a global character.

Sabbath

In the first of our reflections for Lent 2021, Mike Drennan SJ reflects on the meaning of 'sabbath'.

For Reflection

  • Where do you find Sabbath time?
  • What gods tempt your Sabbath time?
  • How does the prevailing trend influence my choices?
