by Greg Friedman
Its inspiring and reassuring to have a companion on ones spiritual journey. In Lent With the Saints, Franciscan Father Greg Friedman provides such companions for each day of our Lenten journey: among them Thomas Merton and Augustine, young sinners turned spiritual leaders; Francis, Clare, Damien of Molokai, and Teresa of Calcutta, selfless and saintly souls; Gianna Molla and Thrse of Lisieux, everyday heroes whose small actions testified to the dignity of human life. Through insightful reflections, Fr. Greg draws on his love of the saints to connect us to the Scriptural readings of Lent, offering us daily inspiration during the season of repentance, forgiveness, and hope. Each day of Lent until Easter Sunday, find: brief reflections on each Lenten lectionary reading; saintly connections to each reading; suggested actions for each day; prayers to help you slow down and reflect upon this holy and sacred season.
