The Jesus issue: New ways to meet Christ this Lent

Vol. 7 | No. 5 | March 11, 2022

On the cover: A sixth-century icon of Christ Pantocrator from St. Catherine’s Monastery in Mount Sinai, Egypt. The season of Lent is an opportune time for Catholics to look at Jesus Christ with new eyes — and new questions. On Page 10, eminent Catholic writer Russell Shaw reflects on connecting with the person of Jesus through the Gospels. On Page 13, Mike Aquilina draws Lenten inspiration from the life and writings of the Catholic Church’s newest (and oldest) “Doctor.” And on Page 16, Stefano Rebeggiani talks to a missionary priest in the Holy Land about what the “Fifth Gospel” reveals about Christ.
