Daily Reflections for Lent “Baptism per se initiated us into a life of sanctity. Each year Lent provides us with forty days to dust off our baptismal promises and to polish our efforts at living up to the significance of this Sacrament. Seen in this light, the season of Lent is called many things: a journey, a challenge, a penance, an opportunity, the focus of all of which is supposed to move us from desert to city, from solitude to community, from temptation to dedication, and from personal accomplishment to radical trust in what only God can do. Thus Lent comes through as a totally immersive environment which we enter body and soul, and each year find this space of forty days a different experience. This book is a timely guide to showing us how this can be.
