Lent is the special time each year when we prepare our hearts, minds, and spirits for the glory of the Resurrection. During these 40 weekdays, we are invited into the scriptures to celebrate the plan of our Father to reunite His people to Himself through His only son, Jesus. On Easter, we celebrate the culmination of salvation history when Jesus rises from the dead, opening heaven’s gates to all of those who believe in him.
This course is designed to help the faithful fully participate in this season of Lent. In a world focused on bunnies, egg hunts, and spring cleaning, the Church offers us the opportunity to focus on the true meaning of the season: Celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Throughout this course, we will use the weekly scripture readings and Church history to achieve a deeper understanding and appreciation for the Easter season.
