Lent with Pope Benedict XVI: Meditations for Everyday
As the Holy Father says, "It is urgently necessary in these forty days to listen anew to the gospel, the word of the Lord, the word of truth." Pope Benedict is an inspiring and insightful guide who can lead us into a deeper understanding of the gospel and the truths of our faith so that we become more faithful disciples of Christ.
• Reminds us of the benefits of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving during Lent.
• Leads us into a meaningful celebration of Christ's resurrection and the Easter season.
• Useful for individuals, families, or prayer groups.
"Lent with Pope Benedict XVI is an opportunity to experience our Holy Father once again as a sensitive spiritual director and a teacher of profound wisdom. As he guides us through each day of Lent, he shows us that Christ is our "sturdy support" and the source of that "Indispensable spiritual energy" we need to live in peace and happiness. The meditations in this book will nurture you on your Lenten journey so that at Easter, you can experience all over again the joy of the risen Lord and the new life he came to bring us." —Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington
