Lenten Companion Journals and meditation video instructions will be available at the church entrances beginning February 19th.
Lent is an important season in the Church’s liturgical year — it is the time when we take stock of where we are in our faith to prepare for the death and resurrection of our Savior. Often, we lose sight of the point of this season because we get caught up in ourselves: how hard it is to fast, how we fail at fasting, and just waiting for the season to be over at Easter. Because of this we often arrive at Easter with our lives no more changed than they were on Ash Wednesday.
A way that the Church of Saint Timothy is seeking to prepare for Jesus and experience true transformation in our lives in this powerful season is by engaging with The Lenten Companion journal from Ascension. This resource follows the Gospels for each Sunday of this Lent so we can better prepare for Mass and grow closer to Jesus each day. The journal (provided by Saint Timothy) has daily meditations, space for journaling, original sacred artwork and is complimented by weekly videos (on-line – ranging from 6 – 13 minutes) that keep us on track.
