As we begin our Lenten journey and think about the challenges that we will face during this season, Jack Mahoney encourages us to contemplate the very human challenges that Jesus himself faced during the forty days after his baptism. The temptations with which the devil taunted Jesus, as recounted by St Luke, represented the questions he would have to consider as he prepared for his ministry – how did Jesus respond to them, both in the desert and throughout his ministry? from Thinking Faith.
Over the coming weeks, Fr Jack Mahoney, SJ will be guiding us on our journey through Lent as he looks in depth at the gospel reading for each Sunday during the season. As we prepare for Ash Wednesday, Fr Mahoney examines the significance of traditional Lenten observances and introduces us to the person and theology of St Luke, whose gospel will be the basis of much of our reflection this Lent. From Thinking Faith, the online journal of the British Jesuits.
I found this article. Monks and MBAs in the National Catholic Reporter an interesting read. It highlights the importance of partnerships and the working together in the ministry of the church. Everyone wins.
