Praying with the Province for Lent
The Irish Jesuit Province has just issued a Cycle of Prayer booklet to help those who work in its various apostolates to pray together during Lent. “This simple prayer guide,” writes Provincial Fr John Dardis in his foreword, “is designed to accompany us through the Lenten period, and takes as its theme ‘Praying Together for Renewal and New Life’, based on the Province Apostolic Plan and focusing on our mission today.” The original suggestion for the guide came from Ken Rue (pictured here) of Messenger Publications, who raised with Deirdre Soffe (Partnership in Mission) the question of getting the many Jesuit works in Ireland to support each other through prayer. The first fruit of this discussion is the current guide, designed and laid out by Triona McKee and Paula Nolan at the Messenger. The full text is available here.
