Jesuit Lenten Book Club

This Lent, make spiritual reading and conversation part of your preparation for Easter with the Jesuit Lenten Book Club.

Open to anyone interested, the book club will feature a private Facebook group for ongoing discussion throughout Lent and a live, interactive online gathering on Thursday, April 9 (Holy Thursday).

Our book is Graham Greene’s 1940 novel The Power and the Glory, the story of an unnamed priest who secretly serves Catholics in Mexico after a state governor has declared the faith illegal. The priest is a broken, gluttonous, deeply sinful man searching for grace.

Facilitating the conversation will be Nick Ripatrazone, the author of seven books including Longing for an Absent God, a consideration of how faith and doubt influences Catholic storytelling.

To join the group, please complete the form found by clicking here.

Once you sign up, you’ll receive an Email with:

  • A link to the private Facebook group where Nick Ripatrazone will facilitate conversation about the book; and
  • An invitation to the online gathering on Holy Thursday where Nick and AMDG Jesuit Podcast host Mike Jordan Laskey will welcome you to an interactive session on the book and our shared Lenten journeys.
