We’ve just passed the half-way mark of the Lenten season. This is a good time to consider what we’ve done or not done to observe the season…and what we can still do. That’s the great thing about being Christian. We always are offered another chance.
With that in mind, here are some great Lenten resources I have found on the web. Feel free to peruse them and share them.
Sacred Space. This is a great year ‘round site with daily prayer in a myriad of languages. However, it’s now offering a special Lenten retreat.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Lenten site, “Believe, Celebrate, Live and Pray.” It offers daily Scripture readings, Lectio Divina (a prayerful way of reading Scripture that is growing in popularity), and a section on “What We Believe.”
AmericanCatholic.Org. Our Franciscan media friends offer daily reflections. Just click on the calendar to find the thoughts for the day.
Pray as You Go. Daily prayer downloads for your MP3 player. Doesn’t get easier than this.
Of course, the Archdiocesan Catechetical Office has more ideas and links for Lent.
And for those who prefer holding a real, honest-to-goodness book, I recently discovered Lenten Prayers for Busy People by William O’Malley, SJ. It’s published in paperback by Orbis Books.
A continued blessed Lent.
