To fully enter into the joy of Easter, we must prepare our hearts. Jesus prepared for his Easter journey by fasting in the desert, and we can follow in His holy footsteps by participating in the season of Lent.

Catholic Financial Life is pleased to provide you with daily Lenten Reflection emails, a bi-weekly Virtual Lenten Mission and reflections from the Archdiocese of Milwaukee Bishops to guide your prayers and reflections as you prepare to celebrate the Resurrection of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

I would like to receive the following Lenten materials

Daily Lenten Reflection Emails

Daily Lenten Reflection emails will begin on Ash Wednesday, February 17 and go until Easter Sunday, April 4.

Reflections from Archdiocese of Milwaukee Bishops

The Bishops from the Archdiocese of Milwaukee will be publishing a series of reflections beginning Palm Sunday, including Triduum and Easter Sunday.

Virtual Lenten Mission

Catholic Financial Life will be offering a virtual Lenten mission, beginning Ash Wednesday, February 17, and continuing every other Wednesday through Holy Week. Each mission will be a half-hour talk that will focus on making your Lenten practice an intentional, meaningful and personal preparation to accompany Jesus through His passion, death and resurrection during Holy Week; and, to commit oneself to fulfilling His mission in our world today. The use of scripture, prayer and personal experiences in each of the talks is meant to stir and inspire you in your prayers, reflections and self-examination during these 40 days.

The missions will be posted below every other week starting Wednesday, February 17 at 6:00 p.m. CST, and are given by Father Chris Manahan, S.J., director of the Jesuit Retreat House.
