Lenten Reflections by John Dear

Posted by Ryan Hall
01.26.16

Education for Justice, which is a Web Project of the Center of Concern created to help educators and others in leadership roles to meet the challenge of sharing Catholic Social Teaching and bring  greater awareness to social justice issues, has just released a great new resource featuring the writings of Fr. John Dear just in time for Lent.

These 11 reflections are written by John Dear, a Catholic priest and world-renowned peacemaker and nonviolent activist for social justice. Father John invites all of us “to reflect on the nonviolence of Jesus as he walks from Galilee to Jerusalem and proclaims God’s reign of justice and peace.” This unique Lenten reflection booklet includes weekly reflection questions, prayers, and suggestions for faith in action.

In order to read John’s reflections, you’ll have to be a member of the Education for Justice website, which costs $58, but it’s well worth it for these reflections and their many other resources.  Learn more about this resource here.
