Here are timeless reflections for each day of Lent to remind us of Jesus’ paschal mystery: his passion, death and resurrection. Traditionally Christians have devoted this time to prayer, fasting and acts of charity. With this little book We may focus more clearly on the daily readings at Mass, and through their message of forgiveness be helped to a  true spirit of repentance. The Gospel is given for each day (in the case of Sundays, a choice has been made from the A, B and C cycles of readings), While short commentaries chosen from the Writings of one of the Saints or Fathers connect us in our reflection directly to the Early Church, further aided by biographical notes on each writer and by concluding prayers, also from the Saints and Fathers, to guide our thoughts more deeply. Sharing these reflections we can approach more closely the mystery of Christ’s saving redemption and come to share more fully in the Eucharist Which is its triumphant renewal.
