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.

My Domestic Church Daily Clips 02/12/2010

    • Eventually six brothers and two sisters arrived as gifts from God. Only three
      lived beyond the age of ten. Justin died when he was nine, four others died as
      infants. Such comings and goings from Heaven to earth, and earth to Heaven
      welded our family together in fortitude and love. I never heard my parents
      quarrel. They were always at peace.
    • A golden cloud came out of the cave and flooded the niche with radiance. Then
      a lady, young and beautiful, exceedingly beautiful, the like of whom I had never
      seen, stood on the edge of the niche. She smiled and smiled at me, beckoning me
      to come closer as though she were my mother, and she gave me to understand in my
      soul that I was not mistaken.

      The Lady was dressed in white, with a white veil on her head, and a blue sash
      at her waist. A Rosary of white beads on a golden chain was on her right arm. On
      that cold winter's day, her feet were bare, but on each foot was a golden rose
      radiant with the warmth of summer.

      I went upon my knees and took my Rosary from my pocket The Lady took the
      Rosary from her arm and I began to cross myself. My arm could not move until the
      Lady herself made a beautiful Sign of the Cross.
  • A physician talks about the high Cesarean rate and how it is worsening maternal mortality rates and not benefiting babies. He also discusses studies that say giving mom more time to deliver might be the best answer.
  • Gathering data from real woman about breast cancer. To be part of the study one sister should not have a diagnosis of breast cancer but have a sister who was. This is the type of study that may bring us more information on what actually causes breast cancer.
  • A homebirth mattress commercial - neat!
