Hearing, Happening, Hoping
This is a resource based on the Scripture readings for each Sunday during Lent. It aims to help us to listen deeply to the Sunday Gospel and reflect on where we see this Gospel happening in our lives and in the world around us. It is a very simple and easy-to-use method which can be led by anyone. It invites people to share from their own experience.
There is a one page handout for each Sunday to guide a group through this way of reading the Scriptures. Each session ends with a time for prayer and looking forward in hope. This is an ideal resource to use in your parish community with scripture groups, lectio groups, those who have completed the weeks of guided prayer, PPCs, etc. Or people could simply gather in a small group of 3 or 4 to use this resource to share on God’s Word.
Some parishes have decided to make them available for people to take home with them after Mass by leaving them at the back of the Church or including them with the Sunday newsletter. Whatever way you decide to use them we hope that they will help you to attend to the Word of God more deeply during Lent.
