The Final Lenten Study Session

Part VI: Wrapping Up Our Study of 'The Purple Headed Mountain'

By Fr. Mark Perkins

Editor's Note: See Part 1 here, Part 2 here, Part 3 here, Part 4 here, Part 5 here, and Part 6 here.

In this final session of our Lenten series on Fr. Martin Thornton's 'The Purple Headed Mountain,' we began with an overview of "ACTS" prayer (which Thornton refers to as "Colloquy"). Here is the relevant handout for that part:

Then we returned to the text of the book. (You can find the handout for the relevant chapters, 8-10, here.) Having considered Fr. Thornton's meditations on Christ's Temptation last time, we turned to his reflections on Christ's prayer in Gethsemane, and on the penitential -- and joyful! -- character of St. Mary Magdalene, before concluding with his "Easter Parade."

Here is the audio lecture:

Blessings this Holy Week!
