My Lent 2019 Book List Plans

Is this the year you really want to dive into Lent? Do you want to come out of this Lenten Season and truly feel that you've had a small share of living in the desert with Christ for 40 days? I know that I do. Maybe it's an upcoming birthday that's making me have more of a now-or-never type of attitude towards Lent. Or maybe I just acutely feel the necessity of truly modeling this for my children, and living it with my husband. Whatever it is, these are the books and resources I'm going to use this Lent to really LIVE the season from Ash Wednesday all the way through to Easter Vigil. Look them over. If something looks helpful to you, use it. If it inspires you, go with it. I hope all of these bless and encourage you.

Surrender

I found this great quote by Rex on is blog.

In a comment to my previous post, JohnH made the excellent observation, "Surrender is the key to orthodoxy." In this contribution, he captures the essence of what it takes to conform our minds to the teaching of the Church. This surrender does not mandate a mindless, thoughtless, unquestioning acceptance; but rather it is an attitude that recognizes that Christ entrusted His Church with the authority to teach in His Name, and that on those points that matter most, the Church is preserved from teaching error. With this attitude, we can gradually learn to conform our minds to Church teaching, by reading and re-reading Church documents with the mind of the Church. Then we add prayer to the mix, where we ask God to give us the grace to believe that which has been proclaimed as true.
