Pray40Days Lenten Journey @ St. Gabriel Parish
Feb 26 @ 6:15 pm

St. Gabriel is excited to offer a three day Lenten retreat that will introduce a book, Pray40Days, by Fr. Michael Denk. Fr. Michael will introduce the Lenten prayer opportunity with very fun singing, videos, and his guidance on the device application. Join us, Sunday, February 26 at 6:15 pm, Monday, February 27 and Tuesday, February 28 evenings at 7pm. Participants can attend one or all three experiences.

Fr. Michael explains, “What if I told you right now that, in these next 40 days, your prayer life could be set on fire? What if I told you that within our own Catholic faith tradition, we have all the tools that can allow us to receive the Holy Spirit and experience God the Father as a tender, caring, deeply personal presence in our lives? What if Jesus were actually real to YOU? What if the Holy Spirit was not just some abstract idea, but a real personal force of inspiration, presence, and overwhelming joy in your life? Sounds pretty amazing, doesn’t it? Welcome to Pray40Days.

Whether you are a beginner in prayer, want to grow in your prayer life, or have a very advanced prayer life, the exercises in Pray40Days will help you experience God, “for real.” My purpose for writing Pray40Days (with corresponding App and online resources) is to help you grow in your prayer life so that you will come to know God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in a deep, personal, and profound way. It is written especially for people who want to grow in their prayer life but just don’t know how. It is also for people who don’t even know they want to grow, but will soon discover how much deeper they can really go! Pray40Days will guide you through different types of prayer that will immerse you in the life of Christ, fill you with the Holy Spirit, and allow you to be held and loved by the Father. By the end of Pray40Days, you will come to love spending time with God and look forward to the wonder that awaits you every time you enter into this quality time with God who loves you more than anyone else ever could.”

Venture in Faith - Fast, Pray, Give @ St. Thomas More Parish | Brooklyn | Ohio | United States

Lent is a special time of prayer, penance, sacrifice and good works in preparation of the celebration of Easter. In the desire to renew the liturgical practices of the Church, The Constitution of the Sacred Liturgy of Vatican Council II stated, “the two elements which are especially characteristic of Lent – the recalling of baptism or the preparation for it, and penance; should be given greater emphasis in the liturgy and in liturgical catechesis. References to the earliest period of “preparation for Easter” are found in the year 203 AD. There was much confusion as to the preparation being 40 hours or 40 days.

The Council of Nicea (325) in its disciplinary canons noted that two provincial synods should be held each year, “one before the 40 days of Lent.” This then established the accepted origin of the actual “40 days of Lent” which we observe today.

St. Thomas More’s Spiritual Life Commission has scheduled the 2017 Lenten activity to be a three-day program, Venture in Faith: Fast, Pray, Give. The program will start on Sunday evening, March 12th, and follow with Monday, March 13th and commence on Tuesday, March 14th. Each evening will begin at 7:00 pm in St. Thomas More Church, 4170 North Amber Drive, Brooklyn, Ohio, and should only last about one hour each.

The program is based on the model developed as part of the Vibrant Parish Life initiative and is the 7th in a series created by the St. Thomas More Spiritual Life Commission.

The program is open to the public and all Parishioners in our cluster are invited to participate as a part of their personal Lenten activities.
