Wednesday Lenten Reflections
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:
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)
