Pop-Up Catechesis: Lent and Following Our Inner Compass

Pop-Up Catechesis with Joe Paprocki

Just as the magnetized needle of a compass is naturally drawn to face north (the Earth’s magnetic pole), each of us is naturally drawn toward God. However, throughout the year, our attention is drawn by other things. Lent is a time for us to “turn around” and to once again allow ourselves to be drawn to God. Through praying, fasting, and giving alms, we focus our attention on God, to whom we are naturally drawn. In this episode of Pop-Up Catechesis, we explore the notion of turning around and following our inner compass to return to God.
