Growing in Friendship with God this Lent

William A. Barry, SJ, writes: Lent is a great time to give God a chance to convince you of his desire for your friendship. Traditionally Lent has been a time of engaging in practices of penance or prayer that will ready us to experience, more and more deeply, the almost unbelievable love and generosity of God toward us wayward human beings. This Lent, grow in your friendship with God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit with a special series by the dotMagis bloggers. We share Fr. Barry’s meditations for the Wednesdays of Lent and a reflection inspired by each.
