Reflection on Vocation in the Context of Lent, Fifth Sunday

Brother Alphonse LeBlanc, FSC Under the former Latin rite, the Fifth Sunday of Lent was called Passion Sunday.  Purple cloth covered the statues and crucifixes giving the church a rather sinister atmosphere. Dioceses of the United States may still permit the covering of statues and crucifixes. Lent gets very serious at this time. Lenten resolutions [...]

Reflection on Vocation in the Context of Lent, Second Sunday

By Brother Michael Livaudais, FSC This Sunday’s liturgy contains one of my favorite (and dramatic) Genesis stories: Abraham’s test of faith (Genesis 22:1-18.)
