This book is an excellent guide through lent. Each daily reflection features a brief excerpt from Thomas Merton's writing, a scripture passage, some questions to ponder and a question to respond to in a lenten journal.

I've loved reading and reflecting briefly on all these elements. The only part I've stopped using are the questions for the Lenten Journal. My mind just doesn't work in that way.

The Catholic Publishing House Liguori Press has produced several volumes of collections from writers with varying degrees of relation to the Roman Catholic Church including such great Roman Catholic priests and theologians as the Reverend Father Henri Nouwen through its Lent And Easter Wisdom: Daily Scripture And Prayers Together With Nouwen's Own Words. Liguori also presents further Liturgical Seasons, including Advent And Christmas Wisdom From Henri J.m. Nouwen: Daily Scripture And Prayers Together With Nouwen's Own Words (Redemptorist Pastoral Publication) and Advent and Christmas With Thomas Merton (Redemptorist Pastoral Publication).

This present volume gathers generous passages from the well received Trappist monk, priest, hermit and Novice Master the Reverend Father Louis, known best to the world as Thomas Merton. From 1950 through 1964 Father Merton wrote fifteen essays related to the Liturgical Year which were later published as Seasons of Celebration: Meditations on the Cycle of Liturgical Feasts. The Merton Legacy Trust has kindly permitted Liguori to draw from the rich and nourishing well of these essays in order to form this series of meditations for each day of Lent, beginning with Ash Wednesday and continuing through the sacred Triduum of Paschaltide on to the Second Sunday of Easter.

This Lenten book with Merton wisdom is a pearl. Relevant to daily living and spiritual growth. Profound and practical. Very helpful for a daily Lenten practice.

I've already read half the book. I plan on reading it daily through Lent and start a journal as suggested.

Format: Paperback
great for spiritual growth during the Lenten season. Although I might not agree with everything this theologian says, it is highly worthy of the season for growth in the faith God has given to us. This whole series of books by Liguori, including the one by John Paul II, is worth the read and reflection whether you are Catholic with a upper case "C" or a lower case "c"
