A Virtual lenten Retreat

Video 7: Stations of the Cross

Please enjoy the seventh and final video in the seven-part virtual Lenten Retreat provided by the Director of Adult Spirituality Programs at Prep Rev. Kevin Schneider, S.J.

In this video Fr. Schneider discusses the last days of Jesus before his crucifixion, starting with his transfiguration then as he encounters those who are angered or confused by him and those who want to do away with him.

Fr. Schneider also reflects on the Stations of the Cross that draw him in and that Ignatius would encourage us to close our prayer with a colloquy, a conversation with Christ that explores what we have done for him and what we should do for him.

Video 6: A Good Person is in Right Relationship

Please enjoy the sixth video in the seven-part virtual Lenten Retreat provided by the Director of Adult Spirituality Programs at Prep Rev. Kevin Schneider, S.J.

In this video, Father Schneider discusses what it means to be a good person, the cardinal sins that take us away from living that way, and that reflecting through the Examen on the patterns of sin in our lives can lead us to patterns of joy and the love of Christ. He also reminds us that God wants us to walk with him in joy and hope as he enters Jerusalem and his final days leading to the Triduum of Holy Week.

He recommends that we prepare for it by reviewing the Ten Commandments and the seven capital sins and by reciting the Act of Contrition.
