Food for Faith for Lent 2020

Each day of Lent, from Ash Wednesday (Wednesday 26 February 2020) until Easter Sunday (12 April 2020), I will offer a brief email reflection to guide us through these 40 days of grace.

Some days there will be a paragraph or two and on other days there will be a short video clip or podcast.

Prayer is an engagement with God who meets us in our reality, and my hope is that these email prompts will encourage you to a deeper personal encounter with Jesus Christ who dwells among us in our present reality.

To receive daily email updates please subscribe by following the link below.

Please also share this invitation with friends and family who may be interested.

I am grateful for your support and encouragement and I look forward to making this Lenten journey with you.

In Christ
John

From Pope Francis:

Lent is a new beginning,
a path leading to the certain goal of Easter,
Christ’s victory over death.
This season urgently calls us to conversion.
Christians are asked to return to God “with all their hearts” (Joel 2:12),
to refuse to settle for mediocrity
and to grow in friendship with the Lord.

Jesus is the faithful friend who never abandons us.
Even when we sin, he patiently awaits our return;
by that patient expectation,
he shows us his readiness to forgive
