Lenten Reflections with Poetry

Lent is a period of deep prayer, reflection, and constant metanoia. This Lent, let’s try a different dimension of prayer - poetry. The Psalms are full of poetry. Poetry lends itself to prayer, which evokes praise, which transcends tumultuous times (such as we have encountered this past year) and gives us peace.

Each week, you will have the opportunity to listen to a poem based on the love of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

Here are a few points that you may consider:

  • What is the heart of the message?
  • What does the message kindle within your heart?
  • What are you called to be and do after prayerfully considering this poem?
  • How does this poem reflect your Lenten journey?
