For the journey: what makes us who we are?
At the heart of our life together is the Holy Eucharist but, like anything that is so familiar and everyday, we can easily take for granted and forget the great gift we are being given.
Each day, for the 40 days of Lent, we’ll be reflecting on the Eucharist. Some of the daily posts will offer a longer reflection, whilst others will simply share and briefly reflect on some lovely prayers and Eucharistic hymns.
There’ll be some sayings and stories of the Saints, too, who themselves have been nourished and sustained by the Holy Eucharist throughout their earthly pilgrimage.
We hope that, as we journey through the 40 days of Lent we’ll receive a fresh appreciation of the great Mystery of the Mass, and grow in love for Jesus, as we draw close to his saving death and resurrection.
In addition to this Lenten project, we’ll still be sharing our usual daily posts with a bible reading, brief reflection and prayer.
40 days | an explanation
If you count the days between Ash Wednesday and Easter you’ll get more than forty days! Not included in the traditional 40 days of Lent are the Sundays of Lent, and so our reflections will be posted every day apart from Sunday.
