‘Walking with Jesus in the Wilderness’ – Lay Readers Provide Daily Lenten Reflections
We are inviting you to join us during Lent 2021. While we cannot be together, Lay Readers from the length and breadth of the United Dioceses of Dublin & Glendalough have gathered virtually to provide a thought for the day online.
Entitled ‘Walking with Jesus in the Wilderness’, the series of short reflections will be posted daily on the United Dioceses of Dublin and Glendalough YouTube channel (subscribe now so as not to miss a post) and will also be available on the Diocesan Website, Facebook page and Twitter.
Archbishop Michael Jackson will begin the series on Ash Wednesday, February 17, and will provide weekly reflections on Sundays throughout Lent. The Diocesan Readers will take over from Mondays to Saturdays providing hopeful reflections and prayers for our times based on the readings for each day until Maundy Thursday, April 1.
Commending the new online series, Archbishop Jackson commented: “Extended periods of Lockdown offer few opportunities, not least when we find ourselves coming to terms with successive Lockdowns. There is every likelihood that once again The Season of Lent will be in Lockdown.”
“In response to this, the Readers of the United Dioceses have accepted my invitation to offer a thought for the day throughout Lent. I hope that many will find this helpful and useful and wish to thank all who have worked to make this possible. I also want to encourage you to use this series as part of your engaging with Lent 2021 in very difficult practical and spiritual circumstances,” he added.
