What could Bamboo possibly have to do with Lent? There aren't any mentions of bamboo in any of the Gospel stories, is there?
Richard Gribble, CSC uses this unlikely image and many others to help the reader and Bible student discern more about what it means to follow Christ throughout Lent in preparation for the glorious celebration of Easter. The story of Bamboo in the Garden is a good illustration of what the call of the Master, Jesus Christ, may entail and how much might be asked of us. Though we face struggle and even death, the promise of the Lenten season is new life and a return to the home where we truly belong.
Each lesson in Walking the Journey of Lent: Reflections on the Scriptures for Cycle C is bolstered by opening and closing prayers, contextual scripture and discussion questions.
