The Colors of the Cross: A Retreat Guide for Lent

Not sure how to use this retreat guide?

During Lent, the Church calls every one of us to intensify our quest for Christ. The Colors of the Cross, our latest Retreat Guide, is a tool that will certainly help you do that.

In this Retreat Guide, we reflect on the three colors of the cross. The first, the brown color of the wood, helps us understand why Jesus chose to be crucified. The second, the red color of Christ’s blood, reveals the meaning of our own crosses. The third, the simple skin color of Christ’s humanity, gives us the secret to carrying our crosses faithfully and fruitfully.
