What are you doing for Lent? Is it going to help you get ready for Easter?
In my travels to the Holy Land, I realized in a new way that the story of salvation has many layers that build and support each other in incredible ways.
The story of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection is compelling and meaningful in its own right. Old Testament stories and events bring a new level of meaning and depth the everything Jesus did and said. Standing where Jesus taught, was imprisoned, died, and rose again adds another layer of understanding.
The story of Jesus is like a pool with varying depth – shallow enough to wade in and deep enough for an elephant to swim. How deep do you want to go?
In my book Walking Through Holy Week, I help you discover the connections and depth that lie before you in each of the Masses leading up to Easter.
The week of celebration and remembrance is full of prophesy and fulfillment, participation and perspective. During Holy Week, we become a part of the story in ways that we don’t do the rest of the year.
This Lent read Walking Through Holy Weekand prepare your heart to sit with Jesus at the Last Supper, to pray with Him in the Garden of Gethsemane, and to stand at the foot of the cross as He gives His life for you. See each event with new eyes as you explore the ways that each one tells you something about the work being done at Easter. Then the glory of the empty tomb will be more real than it ever has been before.
That is a powerful Lent.
