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.

    • The research, published in Thursday's New England Journal of Medicine, is the
      latest to show that the benefits of mammography are limited.

      "It's not the great lifesaver that people think it is. It's not a magic
      bullet," said Georgetown University researcher Dr. Jeanne Mandelblatt who was
      not involved in the study.

      Mandelblatt headed six teams that helped shape the new mammogram guidelines
      issued last year by an influential government task force. The U.S. Preventive
      Services Task Force concluded that women at average risk for breast cancer don't
      need mammograms in their 40s and should get one just every two years starting at

      The World Health Organization estimates that mammograms reduce the breast
      cancer death rate by 25 percent in women over 50. Other groups put the figure at
      15 to 23 percent.

    • Among women in the screening group, the breast cancer death rate declined by
      7.2 deaths per 100,000 people compared with women in the decade before the
      screening program started. The death rate in the non-screening group fell by 4.8
      deaths per 100,000 people compared with its historical counterpart.

      That means that mammography reduced mortality by only 2.4 deaths per 100,000
      people – a third of the total risk of death.

      A second part of the study bore this out: Women over 70, who weren't eligible
      for screening, had an 8 percent lower risk of dying from breast cancer compared
      to the previous decade, pointing to the benefit of better care.

      The study was funded by the Cancer Registry of Norway and the Research
      Council of Norway. It was led by Dr. Mette Kalager of Oslo University Hospital
      with collaboration from Harvard University and the Dana-Farber Cancer
