Ask: Basics

The “Basics” download contains everything you need to get started with our 2023 Lenten series, “Ask:”


  • An introduction to the series.
  • Suggestions for making use of longer readings (Lent Year A has several!). This resource includes recommendations for mixing it up with those long readings…including a dramatic paraphrase of the story of the Man Born Blind and a bonus liturgy for Palm/Passion Sunday that puts the liturgy into the reading instead of vice versa.
  • A full index of every question in the readings.
  • “Questions, Translated:” a guide to navigating the questions of Lent Year A.
