If you’re looking for an easy and inexpensive way to inspire your parishioners this Lenten season, I recommend the new Catholic Update “Rediscover Lent: Day by Day”
by Matthew Kelly.
A much condensed version of the book Rediscover Lent
by Matthew Kelly, it offers parishioners the daily reading citation with a brief thought for each day of Lent based on the seven pillars of Catholicism: confession, daily prayer, the Mass, the Bible, fasting, spiritual reading and the rosary. This educational and inspirational piece is affordable enough to be given to every parishioner.
Here’s an excerpt from the introduction:
“Over the coming weeks of Lent, I invite you to reflect with me on seven pillars of Catholic spirituality. These anchors of our faith combine 2,000 years of spiritual wisdom into a handful of spiritual exercises. They may be ancient practices, but don’t let that fool you into believing they’re not relevant to your life in the modern world. These practices are dynamic and ever fresh.
“A tree with deep roots can weather any storm. Sink these roots, the seven pillars of Catholic spirituality, deep into your life, and you’ll weather any storm. You will also come to know the abundant life that Jesus invites us to experience both here and in eternity.”SAVE!
