Overview


In the season of Lent, we undertake spiritual disciplines to remind us of our participation in the death and resurrection of Christ. Here Father Benedict Groeschel, one of the American Church's most respected spiritual teachers, helps us embrace the mystery of the cross as a fundamental truth and reality of our faith. Against the backdrop of Scripture and the writings of the ancient Fathers of the Church, for each day of the Lent and Easter seasons, he offers thought-provoking reflections on Christ's agony, death, and glorious rising. A Servant Book.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This collection of daily readings from Ash Wednesday to Divine Mercy Sunday (the Sunday after Easter) is a kind of sequel to Groeschel's Behold, He Comes, a book of meditations on the birth of Christ. Like that volume, these devotions are not tied directly to the Catholic liturgy for each day of the six-week season, although they are rooted in the general Catholic tradition. Groeschel writes that the key element of Lenten devotion is fervent personal prayer, which will lead to the renewal of individuals and of the Church. He encourages readers to practice some kind of fast during the penitential Lenten season (usually eating only one full meal a day), using the meditations and reflections in this book to help them more fully understand Christ's sacrifice. A special appendix offers the lyrics to hymns that are appropriate for the Lenten season. (Jan.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
