This magnificent treasury from the writings of St. Thomas Aquinas features 63 Holy Scripture-based meditations, one for each day from Septuagesima Sunday through Holy Saturday, averaging two pages in length.
Rediscover an Ancient and Venerable Spiritual Practice
This treasury of spiritual wisdom draws on sources ancient and current–from Augustine to Michael Pollan–to consider anew how fasting informs the relationships between creator/creature, body/soul, and rich/poor.
In timely response to Pope Benedict XVI’s urging that the value and meaning of fasting need to be “rediscovered and encouraged again in our day,” The Spirituality of Fasting is excellent for small groups, parish retreats, homily preparation, and recommended Lenten reading lists.
Take a journey through the holy season of Lent with St. Ignatius of Loyola. The wisdom of this great saint will deepen your passion for Christ. Fr. James Connor, S.J., offers a selection of readings from St. Ignatius, illuminated by Sacred Scripture and his own insight into Ignatian spirituality for the modern Christian.
Each day provides you with words from the saint, a Scripture passage, a short reflection, and an action that will aid you in discerning God’s will in your life.
