The day after Ash Wednesday

Well, here we are a day after Ash Wednesday. Did you make plans for a prayerful observance of the Season of Lent? Yes? Wonderful! No? It’s not too late. Here are some online resources that will get you started for the next 39 days.

Our own Archdiocesan Catechetical Office has online Stations of the Cross and more.

The New York Jesuits have ideas for people of all ages that will take you right through to Easter.

Young men and women from the Augustinian Volunteers offer day by day reflections based on their experiences of working here in the U.S. and around the world in the service of those in need.

The United States Catholic Bishops offer a host of resources, including the Pope’s Lenten message.

American, a Franciscan online ministry, provides prayer and educational resources.

These are just a sampling of the Lenten opportunities available to you on line. However, the best thing you and I could do – in addition to some self-denial, of course, –  is to participate in the Sacred Liturgy as often as possible. Nothing we could find on line will begin to compare with meeting the Person of Jesus Christ in the community of believers, in the Word, and in the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.

A Blessed Lent.
