Using insights from a lifetime of scriptural scholarship, Henry Wansbrough uses the Church’s daily readings to provide timeless and inspiring meditations for the forty days of Lent and of the Sundays (Year B) of the season.
Each meditation ends with a suggested action to help the reader apply the message of scripture to daily life. These acts will revive a desire for God’s spirit to empower us to follow Christ more fully – not only during the forty days of Lent, but throughout the whole year.
