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.

    • On the way home from Church on that first Sunday of Advent, 1970, I joined my  parents’ grumbling chorus:


      “Why does the Creed say, ‘We believe” instead of “I believe’? How do I  know what the guy sitting behind me really believes?  I want to speak for  myself.” (That was Dad.)


      “They’ve taken all the poetry out of the mass. It was a more elevated type of  language before. This sounds like a third grade reader.” (That was Mom.)


      “And now it just says plain ‘Church’ instead of ‘holy Church’ during the  Offertory. Like the Church isn’t holy anymore?” (that was 11-year-old me chiming  in, proud to be part one of the Grumbling Grownups.)
