Sr. Sarah Kohles, OSF will offer an examination of conscience this Lent as she explores the state of our common heart by reflecting on “heart passages” from Scripture. In addition to reflecting on the personal need for conversion of the heart characteristic of the season of Lent, Sr. Sarah will also invite participants to consider what it means to transform our common heart. What does the Gospel of Matthew mean when calling us to be “humble of heart,” and what is Philippians asking of us when challenging us to be “united in heart?”
