Welcome Risen Jesus offers daily reflections and thoughts that encourage families to THINK, PRAY, ACT based on words from Scripture. These exercises are designed to engage your household during the Lenten season by tying Scripture and reflections to your daily life. With each passing Sunday, your family's faith will grow stronger, and the true meaning of the season will be discovered.
Lent is that annual journey taking us into the depths of God's mystery. For many who must juggle life's demands, the season often seems to pass by quickly with little opportunity for spiritual growth.
Begin each daily meditation by finding a quiet place where you can be calm and peace-filled in the presence of God - at least for a few moments. These reflections will not take long. You need only enough time to let these written words sink in and inspire your own thoughts. How will you apply them to your own life? Do they spur you on to make some specific type of change in your life, your attitudes, or your behavior? That is the process of conversion. That is the journey of Lent and Easter.
