In his first 2024 Lent talk, Bishop Greg Homeming explores St Thérèse's experience of God – an experience that was spoken into her brokenness, vulnerability and failures. It is a moving reflection on how we too can encounter God in the most messed-up and seemingly inescapable parts of our lives.

In this second Lenten talk, Bishop Greg moves on to contemplate with us how Thérèse responded to God's loving encounter with her. How did being touched by God in the heart of her brokenness and powerlessness affect Thérèse's thinking and living?

In this third and final talk for Lent 2024, Bishop Greg asks the hard question: what do you do when God's love seems to be absent? He responds by drawing upon how St Thérèse responded when she felt engulfed in a night of nothingness. 

In this second Lent talk, reflecting on the goodness of people that has shone forth in the wake of the devastating floods, Bishop Greg Homeming of the Lismore Diocese shares wisdom from St John of the Cross on how desire can bring meaning and integration – or chaos and disintegration – to our lives.
