 Our Description

This powerful new prayer book for the season of Lent from the Apostleship of Prayer, the “pope’s prayer group,” engages and inspires readers with the daily seasonal scripture readings and introduces Catholics and other Christians to the traditional spiritual devotion known as the lectio divina, or “sacred reading,” in a new way.  

Inspired by the traditions of Ignatian spirituality, Sacred Reading for Lent 2016 by the Apostleship of Prayer, an international Jesuit prayer ministry, is a unique guide to the seasonal use of lectio divinia through a simple, six-step process that provides a prayerful and imaginative exploration of the daily Gospel readings and helps readers look for application in their own lives.  

Sacred Reading for Lent 2016 is a practical resource for anyone who is interested in a deeper prayer life or seeking a new approach to praying and living the scriptures. The prayer book includes brief, seasonally inspired quotes from Popes Francis, Benedict XVI, and St. John Paul II, and guides readers to read, reflect, pray, and respond to the Word of God in a way that is both familiar and fresh.  

Features & Benefits:

  • Perfect for parishwide distribution during Lent.
  • Simple, successful, time-honored prayer method; Ignatian spirituality and lectio divina are perennially popular.

"An innovative way to be invited, with gentle wisdom, into meeting Jesus in your prayer."

"Sacred Reading offers a superb introduction to Ignatian prayer that anyone can use. Too often Ignatian prayer is seen as something reserved only for Jesuits, for people trained in the Spiritual Exercises, or for those who have time for a directed retreat. But this book, created by experts in the traditions of Ignatian prayer, helps the reader to encounter Jesus through short scripture passages, inviting questions, and accessible reflections. It’s an innovative way to be invited, with gentle wisdom, into meeting Jesus in your prayer."

Rev. James Martin, S.J.
Author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage
