Lent Resource: Love Life


With Lent just days away, I wanted to share a Lenten resource with you from a group called, “The Brothers of the Society of Saint John the Evangelist.”

[The Brothers of the SSJE] are a community of men giving our whole selves over to living the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Rooted in the ancient monastic traditions of prayer and community life, and critically engaged with contemporary culture, we seek to know and share an authentic experience of God’s love and mercy. We live a common life shaped by worship, prayer, and our Rule of Life.

The Brothers have designed a program for Lent with a daily video and a workbook. You can sign up on their website to participate.

Starting March 5, 2014 receive short, daily videos from the Brothers of SSJE that delve deeply into the gospel that shapes their community life.  John’s message of love can unlock our hearts and transform our lives.

I love the changing liturgical seasons, and I particularly love that we have this special season of Lent upon us. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers as you journey these 40 days with our Lord. Please keep me in your prayers as well.

Peace friends,

    This Order’s devotionals have been a great resource for me, and I am hopefully anticipating their Lenten series.

    a great resource indeed; I subscribed last year and it was wonderfully helpful.

    SSJE is an Episcopal order. Brother Eldridge is a long-time friend of mine. Brother Curtis often leads Advent or Lenten retreat days in NOVA. The Monastery in Cambridge, MA, is well worth a stop. The Order also has a ‘Daily Word’ subscription for the rest of the year. A rich resource, indeed.
