Fr. Johnny Go, S.J. is doing it again this Lent 2010.
If you feel like you want to do a Lenten recollection but are having difficulty finding a good one, or too busy to go to one, you can spend time with our Lord from your computer desk or even with your laptop anywhere you are telecommuting. If you have a mobile phone which is browser-capable, you can likewise attend a recollection. If you are not in the Philippines, it does not matter. You can be anywhere around the world as long as you have internet access.
Fr. Johnny has prepared an ONLINE recollection where he effectively merges multimedia technology to make your Lenten journey with the Lord interesting and meaningful.
Titled “God in the Dungeons”, this is how Fr. Johnny describes the theme:
Dungeons are not exactly the first place we go to when we want to look for God.
We expect to find Him in churches and the other “holier” places of our lives.
But that’s exactly what Lent does not teach us about God.
In the mysteries of Lent, God enters precisely the “dungeons of our lives”
—the deepest, darkest experiences of human pain and suffering—because He wants us to find Him there.
Let’s find time this Holy Week and allow God to enter the dungeons of our lives and quiet down to hear Him speak to us.
The online recollection begins April 1 (Holy Thursday) till April 3 (Black Saturday) but you can already do a pre-recollection preparation even now by clicking HERE.
