L.I.V.E. – Renewing Our Relationship with God: Praying the Psalms in Lent

With Sr. Teresa Jackson, OSB

March 18, 2023

The season of Lent is a chance to push the “re-set” button in our spiritual lives.  It’s not about how ascetical we can be or how guilty we feel for our sins.  Lent is a chance to re-commit to our relationship with God, to start over again.  We will see that praying with the Psalms in Lent can give us a language to explore the depths of what this means.  The retreat will use a combination of presentation, sharing, lectio, and creative exercises to help us “look forward to holy Easter with joy and spiritual longing” as Benedict says.
