FaithND, the online spirituality community run by the University of Notre Dame Alumni Association, is launching a new Lenten Sunday Gospel Reflection series. On each Sunday in Lent and throughout Holy Week, FaithND will provide email subscribers and Web readers with insights into the day’s Gospel reading.
Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., president of the University of Notre Dame, will deliver an Easter Sunday homily on video as part of the initiative. Additional reflections will be written by Congregation of Holy Cross priests, distinguished professors and other members of the Notre Dame community.
The Lenten Sunday Gospel Reflection series is an extension of FaithND’s increasingly popular Daily Gospel Reflection program. Each weekday morning, readers receive an email featuring the day’s Gospel reading, a reflection written by a member of the Notre Dame family, a daily prayer and a short biography of a saint. This free daily offering is available to anyone, regardless of affiliation with Notre Dame or the Catholic faith.
The Daily Gospel Reflection continues to expand its audience at a rapid rate. After adding more than 11,000 new readers from Thanksgiving through the end of Advent in 2013, the Daily Gospel Reflection email now goes out to more than 32,600 people each morning.
