Lent at Fordham

The Season of Lent 2020

The season of Lent is a time of preparation for Easter, the great feast of the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus. It is a new beginning and our way out of the shadows of despair, disease and death. The path from darkness to light calls for our conversion, our return to God whose Name is Mercy, with all our hearts. The journey invites us to participate in all three practices the Church offers for our growth in holiness: prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.

Join us in this penitential and joyful celebration of Lent and Easter!

Prayer Resources - under review

TBA - In addition to our Lenten programs and retreats, try these additional Lenten prayer programs and resource websites:

  1. Living Lent Daily (Loyola Press)
    Embrace the call to mercy and encounter Lent through Lenten Moments of Mercy. In this daily series, James Campbell shares Scripture-based reflections and the inspiring words of Pope Francis, and provides suggestions for Lenten actions and prayers. Sign up to receive Living Lent Daily via email.
  2. Break Forth: A Daily Lenten Call to Solidarity
    During Lent, the words of Isaiah call us to act with justice—to let our light “break forth like the dawn” by being the best versions of ourselves— working together to build a world in which the dignity of all people is upheld.
    Voices from the Ignatian network challenge us to let go—of fear, of unknowing, of oppressive systems—to restore and repair our world.
    How will our light “break forth” this Lent?
  3. Encounter Lent (Catholic Relief Services: Rice Bowl)
    CRS Rice Bowl is the Lenten program of Catholic Relief Services, the official international humanitarian agency of the Catholic community in the United States, and will offer daily reflections throughout Lent.
  4. Arts and Faith: Lent (dotMagis)
    Enter into a visual prayer experience this Lent with Arts and Faith: Lent. Each week we'll provide a video commentary about a work of art inspired by the Sunday Scriptures.
