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 Seventh Day of Christmas it seems appropriate and prudent to concentrate on the 7 gifts of the Holy Spirit and consider them when making our resolutions for the New Year!





As well as the fruits of the Holy Spirit - charity, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, generosity, gentleness, faithfulness, modesty, self-control and chastity. 


As we prepare for the New Year and our resolutions and celebrations, it's a great day to read over Pope Francis's catechesis on the Gifts of the Sprit - linked above.
