Synopsis: In our day-to-day lives, we move from task to task, often weighed down by the burdens of living, and the constant barrage of ideas that invite us to focus on our own comforts, our own material success, and our self-fashioned vision of ultimate contentment. And yet, journeying, this Lententide, in prayer and reflection, with Jesuit missionary St. John de Brébeuf and his companions, we are invited onto a different trajectory, through the mystical landscape of our lives, where love and self-offering, bound in a deeply personal relationship with Jesus Christ, crucified, invites us into a great human mystery: that in giving ourselves away, we find our truest identity.
