Award-winning journalist and popular blogger Deacon Greg Kandra gently guides readers through Lent with thought-provoking spiritual reflections on the daily gospel readings. Kandra will inspire, uplift, and lead readers to prayer as they make their way toward the new life of Easter.

Daily Devotions for Lent 2020 offers guidance from Ash Wednesday through Holy Week. Kandra, creator of The Deacon’s Bench, will challenge readers to observe Lent with their heart and mind set on repentance and renewal. Each two-page daily devotion offers brief Bible verses, prayers, reflections on the Word of God, and an easy-to-do spiritual exercise that can usually be completed the same day.

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.
