One of the things that makes the Church so beautiful is its universality--the extent to which Holy Mother Church unites the faithful in a common life.
This is particularly evident in the Holy Season of Lent, in which Catholics around the world unite their prayers, fasting, and almsgiving to enter more deeply, as one body, into the Paschal Mystery. Because they are places of common life and prayer, abbeys observe the season of Lent with a particular degree of reverence and rigor to prepare for the triumph and joy of Easter.
This Lent, the Norbertine canons of St. Michael's Abbey invite you to join them for Ad Cenam Agni, a virtual Lenten Retreat from the Abbot's Circle. This new, daily series of reflections, sermons, chants, and conversations is intended to help you draw deeper into the beauty of common prayer and Norbertine abbey life.
Let us hold each other in prayer as we journey, together, toward the Supper of the Lamb!
If you haven't yet, you can sign up for emails to be remembered in our prayer this Lent, and to receive new Lenten content as it is released.
Each day during Lent, retreatants will receive a short reflection written by one of the Norbertine canons of St. Michael’s Abbey. In addition, we will post slightly longer videos every Friday, in which we’ll explore a Lenten topic a little more deeply. Sign up now!
