Now in its fourth year, St. Agnes Church in Baton Rouge has offered weekly Lenten Reflections on Wednesday evenings during Lent (beginning the Wednesday following Ash Wednesday and ending on Spy Wednesday), featuring a particular theme as a guide for one’s Lenten practices, study and growth in Christian virtue through prayer, fasting and alms-giving. These weekly Lenten Reflections are offered free of charge and are open to all, and are attended by many across the Greater Baton Rouge area who are eager to make the most of their Lenten Journey. Many who have attended in the past have suggested that the weekly series provides an effective means during Lent to make real progress in Christian perfection.
“Jesus calls all His children to the pulpit of the Cross, and every word He says to them is set down for the purpose of an eternal publication and undying consolation. There was never a preacher like the dying Christ. There was never a congregation like that which gathered about the pulpit of the Cross. And there was never a sermon like the Seven Last Words.” Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, Servant of God.
St. Agnes Church, under the prayerful direction of our pastor, Fr. Charbel Jamhoury, will host weekly Lenten Reflections On the Seven Last Words of Jesus Crucified, as we invite all to join us at the foot of the Cross this Lent. By reflecting each week during Lent on the Seven Last Words spoken by Jesus Crucified on the Cross, St. Agnes Church hopes and prays participants will:
St. Agnes Lenten Reflections will be presented each Wednesday at about 6:30 pm, immediately following the Chaplet, by a different guest presenter (presentations will be approximately 45 minutes to an hour in length, with the evening concluding by 7:30 pm); confession will be offered at 5:00 pm, Mass at 5:30 pm, with the Chaplet of Divine Mercy sung immediately following Mass. Presenters may attend just the Lenten Reflection at 6:30 pm, or any additional portion of the evening their schedule permits
