Essential Lenten Handbook A Daily Companion compiled by Thomas Santa 9780764805677
Publisher's Notes: This handbook is conceived as an essential reference for the season of Lent, and for the reader's spiritual preparation for the feast of Easter. It collects in one volume prayers, practices, customs, and a glossary of specifically Lenten terms -- in short, all that may be needed in order to provide the reader with the opportunity to journey with the Lord from Ash Wednesday to Holy Thursday, the beginning of the Easter Triduum.
Central to this collection is a series of daily meditations, based on the changing liturgical cycle, which guide the reader through the season with Scripture and the Word. The meditations are a contemporary reflection, weaving together story, anecdote, and practical wisdom in order to provide a springboard for private prayer and meditation.
