About the Theme
Within the solemn halls of the Lenten season, we gather around God’s Word in repentance of sins, preparation for our Savior’s sacrifice, and thanksgiving for the crucifixion’s redemptive power. The theology of the Lord’s Supper mirrors this Lenten pilgrimage in many ways.

Each weekly theme reveals a host of approaches for understanding the same sacramental gift: life-giving fruit, nourishment, healing, communion with the saints, a priestly meal, the feast of victory, and more. Meditate on and embrace these beautiful, biblical images and metaphors of the Lord’s Supper in addition to the chief blessing of the Holy Sacrament described in Scripture: the forgiveness of sins. The forgiveness of sins, won for the world on Calvary and offered in the Lord’s body and blood, truly makes this blessed Supper a “salutary gift.”
