Phyllis Zagano explores the way both silence and stillness can help you turn your heart and mind to God in a more intentional way during Lent. She shows how important it is to detach ourselves from the busyness of everyday life to find stillness and silence—even if only for a few minutes of prayer each day.
Each day’s meditation contains:
• The Scripture readings for the day
• A brief quote from one of the readings
• A meditation
• A prayer, or grace, for the day
• Based on the Catholic Lectionary readings
• Small size fits into purse or pocket
• Offers a Scripture verse, meditation, and a grace-filled prayer starter or action for every day of Lent
• Gives you a moment of prayer and reflection every day during Lent
• Shows you how to extend the peace of your prayer time throughout your day
• Helps you prepare for Easter with 40 days of prayer
