Weber Shop Feature: Resources for Lent

covers of three books

Lent, the six-week period before Easter, beginning on Ash Wednesday (this year February 14), is a traditional time for spiritual reflection. The Weber Center Shop features a wide variety of materials to make your Lent fruitful.

Popular author Joyce Rupp has a new Lenten book called Jesus, Guide of My Life. For each of the forty days of Lent, Rupp offers a brief reflection that opens new dimensions of a gospel account of Jesus’s ministry and applies his guidance to our lives today. She also includes a prayer and daily intention that invites us to spiritual growth and to reach fuller depths in our faith (120 pages, $13.95).

Another new book is Lifted Up in Love, Lenten devotions with inspiration from Henri Nouwen. Nouwen was a Dutch Catholic priest and author of several acclaimed books. In this volume, excerpts from Nouwen’s inspiring insights are paired with original reflections and prayers for each day of Lent, with the prominent theme of God’s everlasting compassion (paperback, $2.95).

A perpetual Lenten favorite is a book by Father Richard Rohr, founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation and considered one of today’s prophetic voices. Wonderous Encounters: Scripture for Lent encourages readers to enter into a divine dialogue and to transform into their original “image and likeness,” which is the very image of God ($14.99).

The Weber Center Shop also carries Through A Lenten Lens: A Meditation Journal for the Season of Lent by local Chaplain and Pastor Cathy Johnson-Paine ($7.00); The Little Black Book, based on the writings of the late Bishop Ken Untener with meditations on the Passion according to Luke ($2.95); and Sacred Space, a resource of scripture readings and points of reflection by the Irish Jesuits who host a prayer and meditation website by the same name ($5.50).
