Tuesday Night Book Group: Lenten Field Trip

February 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

As reported on the front page of The New York Times, Lent 2023 was a time of spiritual revival across America, whose anniversary will be celebrated at this special event in NYC.  Join the Tuesday Night Book Group on a Lenten Field Trip to attend the “Jesus in Zion” Night of Worship at St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Fifth Avenue. Registrants will receive a copy of Bishop Robert Barron’s Lenten Gospel Reflections book as we kick off Lent 2024 together in a powerful way.

The worship service will include lively praise & worship music by Raul Santos and the Zion Megaband and vocalists Marisel Rodriguez and Brianne Nealon. Intercessory prayer teams will pray over those who wish to receive prayer.  At 7:30 PM, the Blessed Sacrament will be exposed with time for Adoration and formation of a “Healing Link,” before the night ends with Benediction at 8:30 pm.

At Jesus in Zion, we’ll seek to love God through praising and worshiping the Lord with all our hearts and souls and minds and strength and to love one another as Jesus has loved us.  We begin with lively praise and worship set to live music, as “He who sings prays twice,” as St. Augustine affirmed.  And we lift our hearts and our arms in praise as St. Paul urged us, “Glorify God with your bodies!”

Intercessory prayer teams will pray over those wishing to receive individual healing prayer.  As stated in John 14:12-13,”Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever believes in me will do the works that I do, and will do greater ones than these, because I am going to the Father. And  whatever you ask in my name, I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.”

The heart will adore what is placed before it—so during Adoration we will adore the body and blood of Jesus before our hearts and together praise the Lord of heaven and earth.

To the extent to which we put our hearts and souls and minds and strength into praising and worshiping the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament, it will open up the channels through which the grace of the closing Benediction can penetrate more deeply.
