Daily Devotions for Lent 2019 offers soul-searching direction and challenges you to stay focused on the disciplines of Lent: prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.
Popular columnist and preacher Deacon Charles Paolino, managing editor at RENEW International, will inspire you along the way with stories from his personal life and parish ministry.
Each day’s two-page devotion begins with a simple call to prayer followed by a psalm verse and a brief scripture passage. Paolino’s daily reflections help you connect your everyday life with the call to repentance and conversion we hear during Lent. His insights and guidance are reinforced with a focused spiritual exercise for the day and summed up with a brief prayer asking God’s blessing, mercy, and courage.
The compact size and affordable pricing make this ideal for individuals as well as bulk purchases in parishes, schools, diocesan offices, and other Catholic settings.
The Living Gospel series of devotionals for Lent and Advent offers spiritual insight and practical wisdom from popular Catholic preachers, speakers, and homilists. A new voice each season and a simple format invite Catholics to hear and embrace the living Word of God.
During the season of Lent, Catholics and other Christians frequently give up something they enjoy as a measure of penance or self-discipline—and often fall back into old habits at the first “Alleluia!” In Give Up Worry for Lent!, Zimak offers fellow worriers practical, scripture-centered advice on how to relinquish the need to control the uncontrollable—not just for Lent but for good—and how to find peace in Christ.
From Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday, Zimak guides you to ponder a scripture passage and to apply it to your own life by following four simple steps:readreflectrespondpray
As you continue to meditate on scripture and practice the simple action steps at the end of each reflection, you will find it easier to replace old worries with new messages of hope and to change your life forever.
