It collects in one volume prayers, practices, customs, and a glossary of specifically Lenten terms -- in short, all that may be needed in order to provide the reader with the opportunity to journey with the Lord from Ash Wednesday to Holy Thursday, the beginning of the Easter Triduum.Central to this collection is a series of daily meditations, based on the changing liturgical cycle, which guide the reader through the season with Scripture and the Word. The meditations are a contemporary reflection, weaving together story, anecdote, and practical wisdom in order to provide a springboard for private prayer and meditation.

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU HAD A REALLY MEMORABLE LENT? People of every age yearn for God. This desire for God is written deep within the human heart. Whether we acknowledge it or not, we all have a longing to draw near to God and be in communion with him. We might not recognize this yearning for what it truly is, however. Instead we might seek to satisfy our longings with material things, relationships, careers all of which were never designed to truly fulfill us. All the while, God quietly waits for us in the depths of our souls. He uses our longings to lead us to himself. Lent is the perfect time to stop and reflect on the state of our souls, to examine the way we live our lives. What habits need to change? How can we live more intentionally? How can we grow in our faith? What would transformation look like? A vibrant spiritual life is a great gift, but we don't just stumble into it. Transformation happens when we look honestly at our desires and habits and seek real change with intentionality. During this Lenten time of renewal, let Matthew Kelly be your guide as you take time each day for prayer, reflection, and silence. As you seek the One who is seeking you, allow yourself to be inspired by new dreams and transformed by timeless spiritual disciplines. It s time to rediscover Lent . . .

This long-awaited companion volume to Howard E. Galley's classic The Ceremonies of the Eucharist provides clergy, liturgical assistants, and altar guild members with clear, step-by-step guidance for the liturgies of Lent and Easter. In addition to background material for the traditions and theology of each season, Mitchell includes specific preparations and instructions for each liturgy of the paschal cycle—Ash Wednesday through Pentecost—as well as Tenebrae, the Way of the Cross, the Vigil of Pentecost, the liturgies of the catechumenate, and the chrism mass. He also provides helpful ideas for how the often complex liturgies of these seasons can be done simply and well by small congregations. Based on the liturgies of The Book of Common Prayer and the latest edition of The Book of Occasional Services, this ceremonial guide also draws on the paschal liturgies of other Anglican traditions, including those in Canada's Book of Alternative Services.

Even three hundred years ago, believers found it difficult to sustain for forty days the proper Lenten spirit. That's why even then, countless Christians turned to the writings of Bishop Jacques-Bénigne Bossuet (1627-1704), whose great piety and simple eloquence won him renown as one of the greatest preachers of his time. From Bishop Bossuet's sermons and spiritual writings, believers drew ever greater Lenten wisdom and strength. Now translator Christopher Blum has selected from Bishop Bossuet's voluminous works fifty brief but remarkably powerful meditations that complement the daily readings at Mass during the Lenten season, thus offering to us the perfect companion for a thoughtful and fruitful Lent. If you read and meditate briefly on just one of them each day in Lent, I guarantee that this good French bishop's eloquence will soon have you not merely remembering the events of Christ's journey to His Crucifixion; it will have you spiritually walking with Him on that journey . . . which is precisely what we are called to do in Lent! With Bossuet, this Lent you will find yourself saying, "O Jesus! I present myself to you to make my journey in your company. O my Savior, receive your traveler! Here I am ready, holding on to nothing. Let me go with You to the Father." That's the fire that should burn in the heart of all Christians. This Lent, let Bishop Bossuet enkindle it in yours. Among the Meditations: God Alone Suffices Pray to God in Secret The Truth and the Life Tempted in the Desert The Sign of Jonah Love Your Enemies This Is My Beloved Son And You Will Be Forgiven The Wicked Tenants In Spirit and in Truth The Silence of Christ Priest, Prophet, and King Our Life, a Journey to God The Great Commandment I Was Hungry and You Fed Me The Love of God for Repentant Sinners Up to Jerusalem God, the Life of the Soul The Witness of the Baptist The Raising of Lazarus Jesus Is Persecuted The True Messiah The Anointing The Betrayal The Eucharist The Passion The Brevity of Life Washed of Our Sins A Sign of Contradiction No Man Ever Spoke Like This Man The Entry of Our Lord into Jerusalem To Unite Ourselves with Christ

Popular author and EWTN host Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle offers the second in a series of daily Lenten devotional resources for families with children through the pre-teen years, this time focusing on the life and wisdom of beloved St. Thérèse of Lisieux.

Cooper O’Boyle also offers practical suggestions on how to put into practice each day the threefold call of Lent: to fast, pray, and give alms or care for the poor. On Sundays, the focus is on the themes assigned to that Sunday of Lent, and a project for the week ahead is suggested. The booklet can be used with any of the three Catholic lectionary cycles and is designed for use with children through the pre-teen years.
