Good morning, my friends!
I'm delighted at the positive response to our first week of our new Bible study, Defining Moments. My hope is that this week's study for Palm Sunday of the Lord's Passion will continue to help you, your spouse, your family, and your friends to make a good spiritual communion (what you do when you really wish you could receive the Eucharist, but you can’t) by providing a tool to prepare our hearts before Palm Sunday Mass.
Just like last week, each lesson is divided up into 5 days—giving you just enough material per day to hit reset in your mind and to focus on God. Day 1 we’ll cover the first reading, Day 2 will be the responsorial Psalm, Day 3 will be the second reading, and Days 4 and 5 will be the gospel.
Ideally, you will complete this Bible studybefore watching Palm Sunday Mass online. This helps us engage in a whole new way, because we’ve prepared our hearts throughout the week. My challenge to you remains: I challenge you to more deeply feast on the Word during this time when we are away from Christ in the Eucharist.
Join me LIVE on Facebook and Instagram this Saturday, April 4, at 2 PM EST / 11 AM PST to unpack what you've learned during the study this week.
Please share this with anyone you feel would benefit from a deeper dive into Scripture!
Continuing to pray for you,
