Lent is one of the oldest Liturgical Seasons in the Church, a time of fasting, penance and reparation. It is a holy and sacred time when we purge ourselves of our faults in order to become closer to Our Lord. This selection of good spiritual reading and Sacramentals is designed to aid you in making a fruitful Lent.

“The observance of Lent is the bond of union in our army; by it we are distinguished from the enemies of the Cross of Christ; by it we turn aside the chastisements of God’s wrath; by its means, being guarded by heavenly support during the day, we fortify ourselves against the prince of darkness. If this observance comes to be relaxed, it is to the detriment of God’s glory, to the dishonor of the Catholic religion and to the peril of souls, nor can it be doubted that such negligence will become a source of misfortune to nations, of disaster in public affairs and of adversity to individuals.” – Pope Benedict XIV, May 29, 1741
