In Lenten Grace, members of the Daughters of St. Paul share the fruit of their “lectio divina” (a prayerful reading of Sacred Scripture). This handy volume contains their insightful reflections on the daily Gospel readings of Lent.
“We are called to daily lay down our lives by letting go of our own preferences, desires, strong opinions. We make choices for the sake of Christ and his Gospel and not on the basis of our own immediate feelings or reactions.” (Page 9)
“‘Sow a thought and reap an act; sow an act and reap a habit; sow a habit and reap a destiny.’ Everything starts within.” (Page 28)
“Help me to let go of whatever habits have become obstacles to living in your presence.” (Page 11)
“The deeper truth is that I have nothing of my own—every ability and capacity I have comes from God. All my bodily graces” (Page 98)
“The reason I am of infinite value, more precious than gold, is the value placed on me by my Creator and Redeemer.” (Page 99)
Lent isn’t all fasting. Here is rich food for your heart and mind. Taste and see: delicious and nourishing.
—Christian Carr, OCSO, abbot emeritus, Mepkin Abbey
The time-tested format gently draws the reader to both prayer and action. . . . I believe Lenten Grace is an ideal companion for our Lenten journey.
—Melannie Svoboda, SND, author, With the Dawn Rejoicing
