Reflect on the Sunday Gospel

This Lent, we invite you to reflect on the Sunday Gospels in the light of various works of art. We have asked writers from the Notre Dame family of faith to pair the Sunday Gospel text with an accompanying image from the Snite Museum of Art on campus and share their connections and insights. View those reflections and works of art here.

If you are not already signed up for our Daily Gospel Reflection email, you can receive these reflections, as well as shorter reflections on the daily Gospels Monday-Friday, by signing up for free here. (The daily email comes with no obligations or solicitations, and we keep your email address confidential.)

Pray Lenten Vespers

There are two ways in which you can join us for the evening prayer of the Church from the Basilica. View the vespers service from the Basilica through a live, streaming webcast on Sunday evenings, 7:15 p.m. Eastern time. Or, listen to an audio recording of this vespers service at any time during your week. Both the live stream and the recordings can be found here.

Pray the Stations of the Cross

Pray through the Stations of the Cross as they are depicted in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart with a narrated text produced by the Congregation of Holy Cross.
