Product Description

Henri Nouwen says that “a Christian community is, therefore, a healing community not because wounds are cured and pains are alleviated, but because wounds and pains become openings or occasions for a new vision. ”This liturgical season of Lent is this kind of “occasion”.  Each year it challenges us to open our eyes to a new and renewed vision of life that enables us to see our own experience through the lens of the Pascal Mystery.  You are invited to join us as we reflect on this mystery through the experience of Jesus and to discover how his healing touch can empower us to become, like him, a blessed presence in our broken and wounded world.
