Draw Closer to Christ this Lent

Draw Closer to Christ this Lent

Ash Wednesday | March 2, 2022

What if you lived in the time of Jesus? Over one hundred radically fresh meditations on Christ’s life will bring you into the heart of each gospel story. A book to read aloud to your family during Lent, or to pray through on your own.

Lent is a time to deepen our faith in a journey of small surrenders. When we choose some exercise for Lent, it is not so much the practice that transforms us, but it is our willingness to change.

Lent is not only about giving things up. This is a time for refocusing and rededicating our lives. These prayers from Christian sources of many backgrounds, cultures, and traditions, will inspire and sustain you during this most important season.

Spend Lent, Holy Week and Eastertide in the company of poets and novelists from across the centuries. In this literary guide, the voices of Dostoevsky, Rossetti, Eliot and contemporary writers will draw you deeper into God’s presence.

Listen and look for Christ’s presence in your life. In this unique book, short readings from extraordinary Christians will open windows on your spiritual life, allowing fresh air to burst in.

This exquisite 3-volume CD set by the renowned Gloriæ Dei Cantores Schola illuminates the life of Christ in Gregorian chant, including the complete passion narrative according to the Gospel of John. 

A Lenten classic – this book is a collection of literary devotions from some of the best spiritual writers of our era. In the Lent and Easter seasons, we encounter the God who is for our healing, our wholeness, and who points us to transformation and resurrection life.

For families who want to teach the faith at home, Make Room presents Lent as a special time for children. Simple and practical activities invite children to wonder about the stories of Jesus, encounter Lent with all their senses and make room for God in our lives and in the world around us.
