The Way of the Cross by Fulton J. Sheen"The author of these meditations on the Way of the Cross has a twofold purpose in offering them in printed form. The first is that they may enkindle in souls a flaming love for the Crucified Christ, who, through His passion and death, revealed to us that it is only through the Cross that we are ever ushered into glory and eternal life. The second purpose is that those who meditate on the great love of Our Lord for sinners will be kind enough to say a prayer for the author." -- Fulton J. Sheen

The Lenten Labyrinth: daily reflections for the journey of Lent by Edward HaysThe journeys of Lent and of life are seldom straight roads, but are usually like complicated mazes or labyrinths. While we often can feel lost along the complex twisting patterns of the labyrinth path, to travel the maze of the Way is the greatest of all adventures. This guidebook of daily reflections for this journey of transformation has the power to change "to radically enrich" our way of thinking, loving and believing. Each day's reflection-which takes but a few minutes to read-is followed by brief questions/exercises aimed at inspiring personal implications. Short of time? A few minutes daily with Father Hays can nourish a hungry soul for 24 hours. Both books of daily Lenten reflections-The Ascent of the Mountain of God and The Lenten Labyrinth-maximize our limited resources of time, making our journey through Lent into the heart of Holy Week a time of real renewal.

Lent with Saint Augustine by Waldemar Turek"Late have I loved you, Beauty so ancient and so new," prayed Saint Augustine. He searched long and passionately so, moving through various philosophies like a lost sheep. In the end, however, he discovered that God is near, within himself, in the depths of his soul. Augustine's Confessions immortalized the path of his conversion, a humble and sincere testimony of a sinner who experienced unconditional love. In Lent with Saint Augustine, Waldemar Turek presents selected excerpts for each day of Lent from this pearl of spirituality and literature, while incorporating commentary that takes the cycle of liturgical readings into account. These reflections serve as a prayerful aid for living Lent spiritually, allowing the reader to better experience the sacred while returning to the sources of faith to celebrate the death and resurrection of Christ.

The Liturgical Year: Lent, the Sacred Paschal Triduum, Easter Time (vol. 2). by Adrien Nocent; Paul Turner (Introductions and notes by)When Adrien Nocent's The Liturgical Year was published in the 1970s, it was the very first comprehensive commentary on the three-year lectionary in relation to the Sacramentary/Missal as these were revised following the Second Vatican Council. Expressed on nearly every page was Nocent's conviction that the liturgy and the Word of God proclaimed within it have something important to say to real people of every culture and time. He constantly returns to the question: What does this passage have to say to us today? Now this extraordinary work of applied, postconciliar liturgical scholarship has been emended and annotated by one of today's leading liturgical scholars. Paul Turner has provided many helpful explanatory notes on history, culture, language, and, of course, liturgy. He has also updated the liturgical texts to conform to The Roman Missal, Third Edition. The result is a resource that promises to enrich and inspire a new generation of presiders, preachers, liturgy planners, and students. On the fiftieth anniversary of Vatican II's Sacrosanctum Concilium, encounter the vibrant scholarship and pastoral wisdom of Adrien Nocent's The Liturgical Year again or for the first time! Volume 2 covers Lent, the Paschal Triduum, and the season of Easter.
