Lenten Posts on Synod facebook Page go Rose for Laetare
Throughout Lent, we've posting short readings for Lent on
the Synod facebook page. In keeping with Lent, we've kept
it straight text, except on Sundays, when we do some
visual art. Laetare (and its week), however,
gives a chance to ease the Lenten discipline. So, it has
been music all week. Check out an amazing setting of the Ave
Verum Corpus, the beautiful O Come Quickly,
a bluesy guitar setting of Donne's A Hymn to God the
Father, and more. You can reach the Synod facebook
page at https://www.facebook.com/WVWMDSynod/.
Scroll through the days to enjoy samplings of poetry,
prose, and maybe even some music or film related to the
