We have gathered some Resources that we hope will help you as you go through your Lenten journey.
Lent for Social Media and Smartphone Users
Every day we’ll send you a 2-3 minute video inviting us to look at the question of who Jesus really is. These videos are designed to help spark a discussion on social media. You’re invited to be part of #ShareJesus this Lent, and it’s really simple to sign up. Go to www.redeemedonline.com to enter your name and email address.
Be part of the #ShareJesus project as we seek to bring Jesus to the forefront of the online conversation. This is a chance for us, as a Church, to remind the culture that Jesus Christ is the joy, the hope, and the peace that we’re all looking for.
- “Lentsanity” app: The Fellowship of Catholic University Students (Focus) brings you the Lentsanity app and other social-media resources with reminders not to eat meat on Fridays, illustrated guides for Lenten observances, “Meat Police-approved” recipes and more.
- Catholics Come Home’s “Movie” and “Heavy Burdens” evangomercials: The media apostolate is encouraging Catholics to share these powerful commercials with messages of Christ’s healing mercy and the power of the sacrament of reconciliation with others through social media and over email, in conjunction with the ads airing on national TV this Lent. Inviting fallen-away souls home to the Church is certainly a worthy Lenten activity.
