Evangelisation Brisbane has developed a new Lent and Easter Octave reflection resource called The Spirit and the Cross.
Written for busy individuals but easily adapted for groups, each day includes a scripture reading and a reflection upon it, some questions to aid prayer and discussion, and relevant quotes from Pope Francis.
Beneficially, The Spirit and the Cross has been written by a single author. This allows for continuity and development within the resource, taking the reader on a meaningful journey. The author, Deacon Peter Pellicaan, is the Executive Director of Evangelisation Brisbane and is an experienced speaker and faith educator whose recent offerings include the Catholic online evangelisation platform Catholic Christianity (www.catholicchristianity.org) and the Going Deeper online adult formation experience (www.goingdeeper.org.au).
“The challenge of listening to the many while attending to the one cannot be met without humble prayer and the wisdom which is the Holy Spirit’s gift. I thank all who have worked hard to prepare The Spirit and the Cross as a resource for Lent and the Easter Octave, and I commend it to you as a way of helping us to listen more deeply to what the Holy Spirit is asking of us as we seek to enter the future which God is preparing for his Church.” Mark Coleridge, Archbishop of Brisbane and President of the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference.
