Wednesday Lenten Reflections with Fr. Libor

Lent, as a time leading to the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus, provides a great opportunity to reflect on one’s life. The goal of the Lenten Reflections is to celebrate Jesus not as a pure object of our devotion, but as someone who touches and transforms our lives.

As content of this personal preparation, I will offer a series of Lenten Reflections that focus on chosen passages from the biblical book of the prophet Jeremiah. It is his personal, tragic experience of preaching to his own people and being rejected that make him a precursor of Jesus – a link well perceived by liturgy, scriptural interpretation, and the Church’s devotion. My reflections will focus on passages dealing with Jeremiah’s experiences that forge his identity. Fr. Libor

The Blessed Sacrament will be exposed during each brief 30—minute talk followed by Benediction at 7:15PM. Questions, please contact the Parish Office, (586) 726-6911.

The topics will be as follows: Starts 6:30pm

March 8: “The Potter’s Vessel-Personal Identity” (Jer 18:1-12)

March 15: “God’s Anger-Jeremiah’s Experience with God” (Jer 13:12-17)

March 22: “The Vocation of Jeremiah-Recollection of the Beginnings” (Jer 1:4-19)

March 29: “The Suffering of Jeremiah-The Drama of Life” (Jer 36-38)

JOURNEY INTO THE HEART OF JESUS starts April 5th The best way of getting into the heart of someone you love is to get to know them intimately by learning everything you can about them. St. Augustine once said “understanding must precede love, for one cannot love what he does not understand.”

Our relationship with Our Lord Jesus Christ is no different.

As a parish we are striving during the first year of our four-year parish vision and mission to KNOW, LOVE, AND SERVE Jesus.

Starting in April during the “Year of Jesus” at Ss. Cyril & Methodius, we invite you to join us once a month on Wednesday night at 6:30PM in the church as we take a 9-month journey as a parish into the Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

The events will be emceed by Bobby Hesley. Each month a speaker will teach on a topic that will increase your knowledge and devotion to Jesus.

Each of the topics are based on Jesus-centered devotions. These will be wonderful opportunities to learn more about Jesus and how you can increase your intimacy with Him through various Catholic devotions while having your Holy Hour in front of the Blessed Sacrament!

The Blessed Sacrament will be exposed during each brief 30-40 minute talk followed by Benediction at 7:15PM. Questions, please contact the Parish Office, (586) 726-6911.

The monthly topics will be as follows:

April 5: Stations of the Cross - Stations of the Light

May 17: Eucharistic Adoration

June 14: Eucharistic Saints

June 21: Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and 12 Promises

July 12: Divine Mercy

August 9: Holy Name of Jesus – Holy Face
