Lent starts in just five days; Ash Wednesday, February 6th. Here’s a great idea for you! Have you ever read the inspiring and prophetic Letter by John Paul II, THE GOSPEL OF LIFE (Evangelium Vitae)? If not, or if it was many years ago (it was issued on March 25, 1995) reading this amazing document could be your Lenten project!

It is not an easy read. That’s where the effort and self-discipline comes in. It’s about 155 pages in the Daughters of St Paul edition, divided into 105 sections. If you read 2 or 3 sections every day of Lent you will have read one of the great prophetic works of our time – written by a Saint? – and be all the better for it. Your intellectual effort and persistence will be pleasing to God without a doubt.

Here is a beautiful quote from the GOSPEL OF LIFE:

“In the early afternoon of Good Friday, “there was darkness over the whole land … while the sun’s light failed; and the curtain of the temple was torn in two” (Lk 23:44, 45). This is the symbol of a great cosmic disturbance and a massive conflict between the forces of good and the forces of evil, between life and death. Today we too find ourselves in the midst of a dramatic conflict between the “culture of death” and the “culture of life”. But the glory of the Cross is not overcome by this darkness; rather, it shines forth ever more radiantly and brightly, and is revealed as the center, meaning and goal of all history and of every human life.#50

IN A FEW DAYS WE WILL BE LETTING EVERYONE KNOW ABOUT OUR BRAND NEW “GOSPEL OF LIFE” PROJECT WHICH WE SHARED AT OUR MARCH FOR LIFE EXHIBIT IN WASHINGTON.
