LENTEN TALKS

Walking With Jesus on the Way of the Cross

7.30pm – 9.00pm

Tuesday 20th February, Tuesday 27th February, Tuesday 13th March & Tuesday 20th March

In a series of four reflection, Fr Andrew Robinson will take us on a step by step guide through the last days of Jesus as recorded in Saint Mark’s Gospel. We will start by joining our Lord in Bethany where he is lavishly anointed; then we will accompany him to the Upper Room for the Last Supper; we will witness his agony in the Garden of Gethsemane; listen in at his trial before Pontius Pilate; follow him to the Cross on Calvary; and, finally, we will witness his burial in Joseph of Arimathea’s new tomb. Fr Andrew will introduce us to many new aspects of this familiar account and, together, we will plumb its hidden depths. Then, when we hear the Gospel proclaimed at Mass on Palm Sunday, we will really appreciate its richness, and be moved and inspired by its power.

Fr Andrew Robinson is a priest of the Archdiocese of Liverpool. He lives and works at Saint Mary’s College, Oscott, a seminary in Birmingham where he helps to train the next generation of priests. As a former parish priest, Fr Andrew really enjoys exploring the scriptures with parishioners and making connections between the texts and our daily lives.
