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.

Our Lady of Fatima




There are two points to the Fatima story that especially stand out to me.

The first is that the children ask about the soul of their friend Amelia and our Lady told them that Amelia would be in purgatory until the end of time.  What could a young person at that time have done that was so terrible as to merit that punishment?  I don't know, but I think it is a sobering idea that I need to keep in mind for my own life and to warn my family about.

Secondly, Mary showed the children a vision of hell, one that Sr. Lucia never forgot.  Hell exists, despite watered down theology that says it does not. 





The Fatima Prayer
O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell.
Lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of thy mercy.

Wonderful links about the feast and creative ways to celebrate it are in my deli.ci.ous file!
