Lent begins with ashes placed on our forehead. The ashes remind us of our poverty and our weakness. But Lent is not just about ash. Lent is a path through which the Holy Spirit wants to transform us from ashes into new creatures. We offer this book to you as a helpful friend for living these days of Lent as a time of great hope. We enter these forty days looking for and encountering Christ so our lives may be made new. Each day begins with the Gospel reading, followed by three points of meditation, and then some tips for your daily prayer.
