 Our Description

“Lent isn't all fasting. Here is rich food for your heart and mind. Taste and see: delicious and nourishing.”

— Christian Carr, OCSO, Abbott Emeritus, Mepkin Abbey


About this book:

 

In this daily Lenten companion, members of the Daughters of St. Paul guide readers in lectio divina on the scripture readings for the season. Includes the full text of the Exultet with reflections for the Octave of Easter.

 

From the Introduction:

"Speak, LORD, for your servant is listening" (1 Sam 3:9)

Lent is a "favorable time" (cf . Is 49:8), a time of abundant grace that draws us toward God and away from the darkness of sin.

In these pages, various members of the Daughters of St. Paul share moments of joy and insight through prayer with Scripture. Our Founder, Blessed James Alberione, encouraged such prayer, saying, "The person who nourishes himself or herself on the Word of the Bible...will be penetrated by the Holy Spirit." The Word of God presented to us in the liturgy during Lent is especially rich and favorable to deeper prayer and contemplation.

 

About the author:

 

The Daughters of St. Paul are an international congregation of women religious. They were founded in Italy in 1915 by Blessed James Alberione. Lenten Grace contains entries from 15 members of the Daughters of St. Paul, including Kathryn J. Hermes, Mary Peter Martin, Anne Eileen Heffernan, and Mary Lea Hill.
