St. Magdalen's Pick of the Month: A Lent to Remember

I had a feeling recently that I was missing something. I wasn't fully appreciating the mercy God offers us through His death on the cross and the Sacrament of Reconciliation. I prayed that God would lead me to a deeper understanding and, more importantly, a more grateful heart. He answered my prayers with "A Lent to Remember".

This four-part video series, available on Formed, is a compilation of interviews with popular Catholic speakers, sharing their personal thoughts about sin, its consequences, and the healing power of God's infinite love for us. Their very relatable and understandable explanations have truly prepared me for a more meaningful Lenten season this year. I have a deeper understanding of what it means to have a priest hear my confession "in persona Christi"; and I look forward to having an encounter with Jesus at my next confession.
