This Lent Deepen Your Relationship with Christ
Being a Christian means imitating Christ. But how can we imitate Him if we don’t personally know Him?
This Lent, discover Jesus’ works, loves, joys, and sorrows in The Life of Christ so that you can follow Him more closely.
Change Your Life By Studying His
You’re familiar with all the stories about Jesus—but do you know what they really mean? You know that Jesus is our Savior—but can you prove that He was truly the Messiah? You know about the Pharisees—but do you know who they really were and why they wanted to kill Jesus? You know how Jesus died—but are you missing details on how He lived?
In this 40-day series, you’ll walk through the life of Jesus, and understand Him better by learning:
- Why it matters that He was the Son of David (Day 2)
- That Jesus is the Truth, not just “a moral teacher” and how we can follow the Way he set for us (Day 7)
- Why He was not a “nice guy” and what that means for us when we see injustice (Day 15)
- What Jesus told us about the end of the world…and how we should prepare (Day 23)
- How Jesus’ actions in the face of the church and public leaders who wanted to kill him show us how to live in the face of persecution (Days 29-30)
- …and much more

Father Ken Geraci, CPM
Fr. Ken Geraci, CPM lived the life of the prodigal son for most of his young adult life. Raised in a typical 1980s Catholic family, who only lived the externals of the faith, Fr. Ken left the Church. He spent years focused on money, fitness, and success. Very successful in business, he made little room for God—but God did not give up on him. During this journey, God presented him with challenges that forced him to reconsider his beliefs and answer the question “What is Truth?” Through years of struggle, study, and questioning, Fr. Ken found his way from agnosticism to non-denominational Christianity and ultimately, back to the Catholic Church. Fr. Ken joined the Fathers of Mercy in 2006 and was ordained in 2012. For two years he served as an associate pastor of a medium-sized parish and currently serves as a Missionary, webmaster, and vocation director for the Fathers of Mercy. Fr. Ken has a deep understanding of the personal and societal pressures that individuals face when wrestling with their faith. He has much experience with apologetics, having spoken to people coming from all stages of the journey—including those who love Christ as well as those who “hate coming to church.” Fr. Ken was the video host for the Good Catholic series We Believe.
