Pausing To Pray Lenten Meditations for Busy People Paperback – December 6, 2010
Customers who bought this item also bought
There's nothing new about Lenten meditation booklets, but there's a lot that's new about Pausing to Pray. In compiling this little booklet, Sarah Chichester wanted to provide an oasis of prayer for busy people, and she has done just that. Instead of scripture passages, she carefully selected short excerpts from the Diary of St. Faustina that seem to grow in intensity from week to week. And the seven Marian priests who contributed the brief meditations have given far more than traditional Lenten reflections. No homilies here, but personal, humble prayer responses to the Diary quotes, as each priest simply talks to God. It's incredibly powerful, like a window into the heart of the priest, inspiring you to make his prayer your own. Day by day, as you pause with each priest for a moment of prayer, you will find yourself drawn ever closer to the merciful Heart of Jesus. --Vinny Flynn Catholic speaker and bestselling author of 7 Secrets of the Eucharist

Maybe we can think of doing a seasonal version of this book: Advent, Easter, Ordinary time?
The reflections are short and thought-provoking and will aid in devotion during the spiritual season of Lent. The booklet can be used year after year. It also features an examination of conscience, St. Faustina's Way of the Cross, the Novena to Divine Mercy, and the Chaplet of Divine Mercy.
This is the reflection for the First Saturday of Lent:
Jesus, I accept everything that You wish to send me; I trust in your goodness. (Diary, 190)
Dear Jesus, I am afraid of what I would have to give up if I gave You my unconditional 'Yes.' I guess I don't trust you enough. How did St. Faustina come to a complete surrender to You? She knew You better than I do. Help me to come to know You more deeply, Lord. I don't want to be afraid of the path that You have picked out for me. Help me to believe that You will be with me every step of the way and that my surrender to You won't lead to misery, but is the key to my happiness.
for Lent and Life. Going through Lent with it has brought me
an even better way to meditate each day. I loved this book and
am now buying another for my sister!
