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.

Feast of Good King St. Wenceslaus

Today is the feast day of King Wenceslaus - yes, the King Wenceslaus from the Christmas Carol!


Good King Wenceslaus: "

King Wenceslaus Good King Wenceslaus looked out on the Feast of Stephen,
When the snow lay round about, deep and crisp and even.
Brightly shone the moon that night, though the frost was cruel,
When a poor man came in sight, gathering winter fuel"

Lest we forget, today is a good day to sing this hymn!


When you think YOUR family is bad, you can always remember King Wenceslaus and then count your blessings.  Wenceslaus was the product of a mixed marriage - his mother,Drahomira, being a Pagan convert to Christianity. After his father's death, Drahomira became the regent and greatly enjoyed her position, especially the part about persecuting Christians.

Wenceslaus was raised in the faith by his devoted grandmother Ludmilla, and when he became 18, Wenceslaus took over his kingdom and stopped the official persecution of Christian, although the blood shed continued.

In the end, Drahmira had Ludmilla murdered, and shortly thereafter Wenceslaus was attacked and killed by his brother while he was on the way to mass. This was the epitome of family dysfunction.
