Bishop John Michael Botean, Bishop of the Romanian Catholic Diocese of St. George in Canton, Ohio, leads us through this First Sunday of Lent. His 10-minute homily addresses the temptations Jesus was offered by Satan in the desert. In the question-and-answer segment Bishop Botean speaks to how the story of these temptations relate to our everyday lives and how we can all find a way to experience this Lent in a more profound way. This week’s musical selection is “Journey For Home” by WLP Artist Ed Bolduc.
 
Green Bay’s Auxiliary Bishop Robert F. Morneau is our retreat leader for this Second Sunday of Lent. He tells us that Lent is all about friendship with God. He helps us to understand this by looking at the 5 “t’s” of friendship, beginning with the first “t”, time. The question-and-answer segment expands on these 5 “t’s” of friendship and helps us to look at Lent in a different way. This week’s musical selection is “Open Our Eyes, O Lord, We Pray” by GIA Artist Paul Tate.

Tucson Bishop Gerald F. Kicanas invites us on this Third Sunday of Lent to deepen our commitment to the gospel. His 10-minute homily helps us to understand the parable of the barren fig tree in a way that demonstrates God’s immense forgiveness for all of us. In the question-and-answer segment Bishop Kicanas talks about how each of us can honor the Lord’s presence in our lives and how this season of Lent allows us the time to focus on the call to holiness. This week’s musical selection is “Be Merciful, O Lord” by OCP Artist Steve Angrisano.
 
Chicago’s Auxiliary Bishop Joseph N. Perry takes the gospel for this Fourth Sunday of Lent and demonstrates how God is reaching out to us with His forgiveness. In his 10-minute homily he relates the story of the prodigal son to each and every one of us and shows how this lesson from an ancient culture is just as relevant to us today as it was then. In the question-and-answer segment Bishop Perry helps us understand how we should deal with our feelings of “unfairness” when we hear the story of the prodigal son. This week’s musical selection is “Bring Us Home” by GIA Artist Paul Tate.

San Francisco Archbishop George H. Niederauer explains what happens when Jesus was confronted by the scribes and Pharisees with an adulterous woman. He talks about God’s grace and the meaning of second chances in our lives. In the question-and-answer segment Archbishop Niederauer looks at just how radical Jesus’ actions were and how he changed the thinking of those around him. This week’s musical selection is “Who Is The Alien?” by GIA Artist Lori True.

Auxiliary Bishop Joseph W. Estabrook takes the gospel for this final Sunday of Lent and helps us understand the impact this holy week can bring to each one of us. In his 10-minute homily he challenges us to live out and participate in the vision of the kingdom of God that Jesus offers us at the last supper. In the question-and-answer segment Bishop Estabrook expands on that theme and gives us practical ways to look for the “kingdom of God” to which Jesus points. This week’s musical selection is “There Is A Light” by OCP Artist Fr. Cyprian Consiglio.
