Spiritual Talk – 1st Sunday of Lent (Year C)

On the 1st Sunday of Lent (Year C), Fr. Anthony Ho continues to describe to us the history of the early Church. Fr. Ho focuses on St. Benedict this time, describing his life and how he became a model for contemplative life. During his contemplative practice, he was able to repel the Devil’s temptation, leading to the popularization of the St. Benedict Medal in rejecting Satan’s advances. Finally, his spirituality heavily focuses on prayer, work and spiritual reading, which in turn deeply affected the principles and practice of contemplative life in later years.

Living out Lent

We will talk about the meaning of Lent and the attitude we should hold during this time as Catholics. Although the Liturgy during Lent was designed for Catechumens, it also gives the Baptized a chance to renew their faith, through acts of penance, prayer, almsgiving and other forms of sacrifice.

Painting Christ’s Passion

We will discuss the meaning of Lent and the Way of the Cross. We will also talk about an art workshop which focused on the theme of Christ’s Way of the Cross.

Regardless of how presentable our appearances are, living a life of morals is the most important thing.
