This Monday evening, March 2 at 7:00 p.m. in the church, we will have the first of two presentations in our Lenten Speaker Series by Dr. Jackie Witter, Ed.D.; the second will be on Monday, March 9. Jackie is a retreat leader, presenter at parish, diocesan, regional, and national conferences, spiritual director, and instructor at both the undergraduate and graduate levels at the Universities of Saint Thomas and Saint John. In addition she is the founding director of Illuminare, a Lilly Endowment funded initiative designed to foster excellence among Church ministers, and director of Spiritual Care at Saint Gertrude Health and Rehabilitation in Shakopee, MN. Jackie will be speaking on the teachings of Pope Francis and how these teachings can help us prepare for Lent.

In his Lenten Message, Pope Francis warns about the “globalization of indifference” that pressures many to feel distressed and powerless. He contends that this attitude causes individuals and communities (including parishes) to withdraw into themselves and close “the door through which God comes into the world and the world comes to Him.”

The Holy Father begins by pointing out that it is easy for us not to concern ourselves with the problems others face when we are healthy and comfortable. During Lent we need to hear the voice of the prophets, which proclaim that God is not indifferent to the world. As humans we tend to focus solely on ourselves and our own wellbeing, and so the world needs a Church that is like the hand that holds open the gate between God and all.
