Looking Forward to Lent
Stephen White of Catholic University reflects on Lent, suggesting two practices focused on Scripture:
“Most Catholics encounter Scripture in the Mass. But rarely do we read an entire Gospel as a whole. Reading the Gospels as a whole is a wonderful way to encounter them anew. It is an excellent way to notice new details. It helps one to notice subtle repetitions and allusions in the text. It allows one to appreciate the context of various passages, which allows comprehension of the whole, not just the parts.”
