⁣Make Lent of 2024 edifying with daily meditations for Lent from the famous French orator, Bishop Jacques-Benigne Bossuet.

As we traverse the solemnity of Holy Tuesday, we encounter the piercing reflections of Bishop Jacques Bossuet, guiding us through the shadows of betrayal and sin that pierce the heart of Jesus. This session is a profound meditation on the emotional turmoil Christ endured, particularly in the face of Judas Iscariot's impending betrayal. Bishop Bossuet elucidates the deeper layers of Jesus' suffering, inviting us to consider the collective weight of human sins that pressed upon the Savior and the paradox of the Cross as both a symbol of salvation and a stumbling block.

With the Gospel of John as our map, we journey into the very soul of Christ, observing his troubled spirit in the face of sin—both personal and communal. Bishop Bossuet's insight into the scriptural moments where Jesus is most distressed offers a stark reflection on sorrow for sin. As Easter approaches, this episode serves as a significant spiritual exercise, allowing us to confront the nature of sin and redemption. Through these meditations, we are challenged to recognize our role in the collective failure of humanity and yet find hope in the redemption that Jesus' ultimate sacrifice offers.
