This week’s episode:
Welcome to Lent 2016!
In lieu of our “Blessed are They” segment, we will benefit from some pre-recorded Lenten inspiration and instruction from Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York
In this program we look at the art of giving — specifically, the work of alms-giving as we come to the Lenten Season. Together with my guests, Sherry Brownrigg and Lisa Hendey, we talk about the work of almsgiving this Lent through the mission of Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and its Lenten apostolate called “Rice Bowl”. Both Brownrigg and Hendey recently toured CRS’s mission in Colombia’s coffee country and share their pilgrimage stories and their passion for Rice Bowl as a powerful means of almsgiving and personal transformation.
Don’t miss the links below to see how you can enhance your personal or family almsgiving through the Rice Bowl.
