Daily Readings for Lent

Vanessa Herrick
ISBN 9780232525670 (0232525676)
Darton, Longman & Todd, 2005

Category: Seasonal
Subcategory: Lent & Easter

This book is aimed at people in ministry. Vanessa is the Director of Ministry and Vocation for the Diocese of Ely and here she provides daily readings for Lent based on the Daily Eucharistic Lectionary with three sets of readings for Sundays, one for each year of the Revised Common Lectionary. These readings are not included in the book.

The reader is invited to attend less to the busyness of church life and more to Jesus as he makes his way to Calvary.

For each day there are two pages of comment which finish with a short quotation to meditate on. These are profound and merit much time for reflection, so if I seem distracted during Lent this year you know why!
