Renew yourself this Lent with Lenten Longings. Lent invites us to a time of prayer, reflection, and conversion. Make a six-week retreat by exploring the Sunday readings of Lent. Simple language and everyday metaphors steep you in the season’s promptings to surrender self, work for justice, and deepen prayer life.
Lenten Longings is well suited for seasonal groups, small Christian communities, and individual reflection. Song suggestions, prayers, and action responses included. By Catherine T. Nerney, S.S.J., Ph.D.
Based on the three-year cycle of the Lectionary, each book contains six sessions corresponding to the six weeks of Lent and presents themes drawn from the year’s Lenten readings. Let Yourself Be—Year A encourages participants to embrace the teaching of Christ that authentic loving involves self-surrender.
