A Lenten Journey for Systemic Change

Recently, someone asked Fr. Francis Gargani what was needed to bring about systemic change. In the face of the pandemic and racial injustices, his answer reverberates in my mind and spirit. I offer a reflection on his answer and how it can advise us during Lent.

To help you on your Lenten journey, I created this handout with some women in my circle of love, complete with a stepping stones sheet for you to record your journey!

I bless you with the willingness and ability to spend time in contemplation each day. I bless you with being transfigured, with letting go of anything that hinders you from being all God created you to be and with receiving all of the great gifts God has in store for you. I bless you with becoming a vibrant member of a Spirit-filled community as well as strengthening and expanding your circles of love. I bless you with knowing God’s love more intimately and sharing it more abundantly during these 40 days of Lent. I bless you with experiencing profound growth this Lenten season that you will rise as a transfigured person on Easter morn! Amen. So be it!

PS - You can catch my actual blessing of you at the end of the video!

I allowed myself to receive your blessing, Andrea! When I'm open the left side of my body tingles (my trauma therapist taught me it is on the left we receive.) Thank you.
