This upcoming Sunday is already Septuagesima. Did you realize that Lent begins on 9 March?
Do you have a plan for your Lent?
Here is a suggestion for part of your Lenten preparation.
This volume will focus on the period the Lord’s life from the entrance into Jerusalem to His resurrection. In other words – Holy Week. The Holy Father’s book would help you prepare well for your participation in the liturgical Holy Week worship.
I am reading a preview copy sent by the publisher. It won’t disappoint.
The second volume may be “pre-ordered” at a reduced price through amazon.com. Click HERE.
Directly from Ignatius Press (without amazon) for US buyers HERE.
The first volume is HERE.
In the first volume the Holy Father’s exposition of the problems with an unbalanced “historical-critical” approach to Scriptures masterful and invaluable. Also, he has a succinct explanation of how we are to understand “inspiration” and Scripture. His reflections on the temptations of the Lord was rich.
I suggest that these would be good gifts to priests, useful for their preaching. Both volumes would be useful for your Lenten reflections.
