Mount St. Mary’s Univ. Students Participate in Spiritual Workout

Students at Mount St. Mary’s University in Emmitsburg, Md., are taking part in a challenge to read all four Gospels of the Bible in three months, the University told The Cardinal Newman Society.

Forty-five members of the University community are reading the books of Matthew, Mark ,Luke and John during the months of February, March and April.  Described as the “4G3” (four Gospels, 3 months) challenge, it allows students to delve deeper into Scripture during the Lenten season.  

University chaplain Fr. Brian Nolan and the office of campus ministry are organizing the initiative.  Fr. Brian states:

It’s a new year and an opportunity for a new challenge.  I have read that some religious orders read the four Gospels three times each year.  This is the Mount’s first year of an annual challenge of reading the four Gospels in three months.  It’s through reading and praying with the Gospels that we draw very close to Jesus, keep Him in our mind and on our heart.

Campus ministry is providing worksheets for students to be able to keep track of their progress.  The worksheets also offer encouragement and helpful tips, such as reading chapters together with another person and listening to parts of the Gospels on CD.  Additionally, the office is organizing catch-up reading times for any of the participants who may have fallen behind.

Mount St. Mary’s University is recommended in The Newman Guide for strong Catholic identity.
