Follow Jesus Along the Way: A Lenten Retreat

Updated: Apr 19

Beginning at the conspiracy against Jesus and the anointing at Bethany, we continue on into the entry into Jerusalem. Then the unfoldings begin in the most mysterious, transforming, and earth-shattering way for the Lamb of God is to be slain. Though we know Ressurection Sunday will bring joy, graces grow and deepen as we walk the way with Him, Mary, and the disciples along the via Dolorosa.

Take Lord, and receive all my liberty,

Give me Thy love and thy grace, for this, is sufficient for me.
