Lent 2019 -
It is not too early to consider your Lenten reading or group
activity, here are a few suggestions.

produced wonderful resourses for both private and group use.
Together have a download and booklet to take groups through The
Mystery of God.

Network with monthly and liturgical seasonal themes.
which is very accessible via their App, always has
daily meditation and an extra retreats for Lent.
books, Lent and Easter: Wisdom from Saint Benedict by Judith Sutera OSB
of the Cross by Timothy Radcliffe have both been recommended to me.
- Finally (says Marie Heath) I shall return again to the delightful and deeply thought-provoking
book by Sr Wendy Beckett. The Art of Lent. Those of you who read the
Tablet will have come across her moving obituary by Ruth Burrows
which gave some insight into her rich spiritual life .
