Throughout Lent, you can return to OnlineEvent.FranciscanMedia.org to watch new weekly videos with Father Don, leading to his final talk, March 27, during Holy Week.
As Father Don explains, Lent is meant to be about not what we lack, but what we gain in the form of spiritual growth and conversion. Inspired by the life of St. Francis, Father Don discusses how these 40 days help us become the people God calls us to be.
