AM is pleased to share once more the Lenten Meditations from the Church of the Resurrection. Fr Kevin Donlon writes thus:
Dear Friends in Christ:
Please find our annual Lenten Meditation Series for those in and beyond our parish community. Again this year we have framed the Liturgical Observation for that Day, the Scripture Lessons for each day with Meditations followed by a Prayer, Lenten Discipline that can be done by people of all ages and a quote on the topic to ponder through the day.
Why do we do this? We at Church of the Resurrection in Tampa maintain that the spiritual life is marked by the disciplines of the church as given to us in the tradition of the church where we are each called to personal prayer joining our prayers with the whole Communion of Saints, in the Daily Offices and Holy Eucharist, done in concert with service to the sick and needy through
all the feasts and seasons of the Church year.
These changing seasons and solemn festivals draw us into a deeper awareness of the truths they celebrate and keep us mindful of the great
company of women and men who have sought and found God, whose lives still encourage us.
The disciplines of Lent and fasting days help keep us mindful of these realities leading is to the profound heart of our common life in the great Paschal Rites of Holy Week and Easter. This weekly meditation series is to assist members and those who are part of the wider church to undertake a Lenten Journey, where one may discover God anew, who is the source of all life, all truth, all hope and all beauty.
May it be a season where Christ, finds a home anew in your hearts and homes and May the Spirit, who gives new life supports us in this journey day by day.
The Reverend Canon Kevin Francis Donlon
Rector of Church of the Resurrection, Tampa
