|The Essential Lenten Handbook: A Daily Companion|
A Redemptorist Pastoral Publication
Lent, the season of preparation for Christís Resurrection at Easter, is for many Catholics a special time of prayer, fasting, and renewed spiritual focus. There is no other period in the liturgical year that so completely draws our attention to the things of God, and to the great themes and traditions of Christianity. The Essential Lenten Handbook provides everything readers need for a richer experience of the 40 days before Easter. Whether one wishes to follow a traditional program of Lenten devotion centered around prayer, a "modern" program that focuses on Scripture readings, a family model that brings loved ones together for a shared spiritual journey, or a unique devotional program, this all-in-one resource is an invaluable reference and the quintessential compact guidebook to all of the basic Lenten practices of Catholicism.
The Essential Lenten Handbook covers a wide range of topics, including:
A short history of Lent
Traditional Lenten hymns
The penitential nature of Lent
Prayers of confession and reconciliation
Stations of the Cross
A Rule of Life for Lent
Lenten prayers to Christ and the Blessed Mother
Daily meditations for cycles A, B, and C
A glossary of Lenten terms
plus much more!
Perfect for Catholic families, returnees in need of a refresher course, converts learning about the Catholic faith, seekers looking to recharge their lives, and people who are searching for a helping hand through the Lenten season.

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.
