Ash Wednesday - March 1
Dear Friends,  

Today, we launch Lenten Xavier Pods - a new initiative from Xavier College Preparatory. After today's reflection, seven more podcasts will follow - one for each of the six Sundays and one for Easter. May this reflection offer you the gift of prayer and discernment during the Lenten season. Please share this wonderful resource with your family and friends. Enjoy!

You may also access Lenten Xavier Pods on the XPress website at

These reflections are from the book, "In The Quest of the Jewish Mary" by Sister M. Christine Athans, BVM, Ph.D. We are grateful to editor, Robert Ellsberg, and Orbis Books for their support and permission. Thank you to XPress and Frances McMahon Ward.

To support programs like this at Xavier, please consider donating to The Xavier Fund at Thank you.
