Using Pope Francis’ “Rejoice and Be Glad”, Gaudete et Exsultate, this presentation will examine modern challenges to growing in holiness, and some of the common traps that prevent us from building a vibrant faith life with Christ. In particular, we will reflect upon the culture of convenience, social media, and individualism to examine why holiness is being threatened.
The second presentation will focus on remedies to threats that prevent us from building an interior life of prayer in Christ. The Lenten prescriptions of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving will give us a guide for how to suffer well, transform our will to God’s and build a life of grace filled with hope.
Distribution of ashes will take place during the Eucharistic celebration.
