Lenten Retreat with Fr. Daniel Issing, CSC
Time & Location
About The Event
In this Lenten retreat, we will contemplate Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem recalled during the Palm Sunday Procession with Palms. “Fear not, O daughter of Zion! Your king approaches you on a donkey’s colt” (Jn 12). What transpires next in the gospel is the mystery that contains and calls us
to renounce ego and serve Jesus in the poor; that is, the mystery of Jesus’ own descent into poverty,
and his invitation to do likewise. Taking this journey with Jesus, we will consider how to evangelize today’s world by being a church that is poor and for the poor.
