My Bible, My Prayerbook
A Lenten Look at the Four Gospels:
Fridays, March 8, 15, 22 & 29, 2019
10:30 a.m. to Noon
$15.00 per session or $50.00 for the series
When Sister Patty Cook was a child, she gave up bubble gum as a way to please God during Lent. Now, as a Religious Sister for over 65 years, one of her cherished Lenten practices is turning to her Bible to reflect on Jesus' life as told in the four Gospels. She invites others to join her in looking together at the Gospel background and selected stories to explore how Jesus' profound teachings resonate with our Lenten journeys today. This program series is aimed at deepening our relationship with God (as we understand God). Endeavoring to live in the right relationship with ourselves, each other and all of creation is a core value of the Sisters of Mercy.
Gatherings will be held on Friday mornings and will focus on the four Gospels in this sequence:
- March 8 - The Gospel of Matthew
- March 15 - The Gospel of Mark
- March 22 - The Gospel of Luke
- March 29 - The Gospel of John
Bring your Bible - any translation is fine - and a journal or notebook. The sessions will include highlights of each Gospel, reflection, prayer and discussion.
Sister Patricia Cook is a Sister of Mercy, educator, retreat and spiritual director, and a retired prison Chaplain. Annually, she serves as a tour host for pilgrimages to the Holy Land. She loves to accompany those who are searching for God's presence in their daily lives.
