Good News Inspiration for Daily Life
Bulletin Insert for March 17, 2019.
Description: For the 2nd Sunday of Lent, in Luke 9:28-36 we see Jesus reveal the uncreated light of his true identity and we hear the Father say, “This is my chosen Son; listen to him.” We experience Christ’s deepest identity every time we listen to him and allow the Holy Spirit to enlighten our understanding of his words and guidance.
For discussion groups such as RCIA and Small Christian Communities (SCC), this handout asks:
- Think of a redemption you’ve experienced, an area of darkness in your life that Jesus shed his light upon when he inspired you to repent. How has this change increased your holiness?
- What is he inviting you to change now, something that’s been difficult to look at or hard to overcome? What would you like to hear from Jesus that will help you turn this darkness into holiness? After you figure it out, take this to the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
- Why is the Passion of Christ your passion? What crosses are you carrying that you hope will help Christ redeem the world from sin and darkness?
