Imagine podcast: Being called and converted by Jesus

Lent is a time of personal and communal conversion, when we acknowledge that God calls each one of us to draw closer and we examine the ways in which we need to grow in response to that call.

That’s why this new season of Imagine: A Guide to Jesuit Prayer will focus on stories of calling and conversion in the New Testament. In each episode, we will experience the many different ways in which Jesus calls people into relationship with him. Some are sudden, dramatic moments like St. Paul on the road to Damascus; others are more subtle like the woman who meets Jesus at the well. No matter how they are called, each figure continues to grow and learn what it means to be a follower and friend of Jesus. The same is true for each of us. By immersing ourselves in these scriptural encounters, we can see a bit of ourselves reflected back and better respond to Jesus’ call.

New episodes will be released on Saturdays, starting on March 5th.
