Lent is the season when God calls his people to return to him with their whole heart. God says that when we return to him, we will find him gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and rich in kindness.
During the 40 days of Lent, we reflect on how we can more fully turn our lives over to God so that we can celebrate Easter with joyful hearts. The Church has given us many tools to help our reflection and conversion. Among these are the following:
- Ash Wednesday
- Stations of the Cross
- Holy Week
My eBook explores these seven ways to practice Lent by offering background on each tradition, an accompanying prayer, and activities for catechists to share the riches of Lenten practices with those they serve. By deepening our understanding of the disciplines, practices, and devotions of Lent, we will live Lent more fully and grow in relationship with God and one another.
