Journey to Glory: Gospel Stories from the Sundays in Lent
This year, we are in Cycle A for our Sunday Readings. During the Season of Lent, Cycle A takes on particular significance because it is often used when a parish is preparing catechumens for Baptism. Certain Gospel stories from the Gospel of Matthew: the temptation of Jesus in the desert and the Transfiguration, along with stories from the Gospel of John: the woman at the well; the man born blind and the raising of Lazarus, were used by the early Church in preparation for adult Baptism.
This year, our Lenten Days of Prayer will focus on the Gospel reading for the Sunday following the Day of Prayer. In making these stories the central focus of our Days of Prayer, we hope that participants will more fully enter into the Word as it is proclaimed in their local faith communities.
