This Lent 2023 booklet was written by Fr Dominic Robinson SJ and Colette Joyce from the Westminster Justice and Peace Commission for the Agency for Evangelisation. It is intended for small groups to use for faith sharing and prayer together but it may also be helpful for personal reflection.
The resource consists of five 60-90 minute sessions, each focusing on a theme covered by Justice and Peace, including poverty and homelessness, racial justice, care of creation, migrants and refugees, and peace. Each session explores the theme in the light of a piece of Scripture from the coming Sunday (beginning with the Second Sunday of Lent and finishing with Palm Sunday), prayer, a reflection on experience from a local example in Westminster diocese, and questions to support group sharing.
