How’s your Lenten Journey going?


How’s your Lenten Journey? Half of the season of Lent has passed. We have a half more to go!

This morning John Harper and I chatted briefly about the season of Lent and the fact that we are half way through this holy penitential season in which we are meant to grow in holiness. We called our segment it a “Mid-Lent Spiritual Tune-Up.” If you missed it, you can listen here anytime. I hope you have a few moments to listen to our chat.

Are you nourishing your faith with spiritual reading? Take even a few moments each day to read from the lives of the saints. It can help to keep you focused and give you a great shot in the arm to get you through your busy days.

Remember–don’t give up! Keep going! Pray and work hard and Our Lord will certainly reward your efforts!

God bless you!

Chatting about Lent on the Son Rise Morning Show

I recently chatted with Matt Swain on the Son Rise Morning Show about Lent with our families. My latest in my Lenten series is Bringing Lent Home with Pope Francis. You can listen to the archive here at your leisure.

Let’s make this Lent count!

Here’s a brief note from the publisher about the newest one and about the series:

In Bringing Lent Home with Pope Francis, popular author and EWTN host Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle, offers Pope Francis as a guide through Lent. Guided by the threefold Lenten practices of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving, the booklet offers inspiring stories, practical ideas for family prayer, easy-to-do activities, and suggestions for conversations. Building on the popularity of Bringing Lent Home with St. John Paul II, Bringing Lent Home with Mother Teresa and Bringing Lent Home with St. Therese of Lisieux, this edition provides the same practical elements: a quotation from Pope Francis, a story about his life, and practical suggestions for living the threefold call of Lent-prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Parents can enhance their own daily prayer by using the booklet’s reflections for parents. On Sundays, families focus on the themes assigned to that Sunday of Lent, and Cooper O’Boyle suggests a project for the week ahead. The booklet can be used with any of the three Catholic lectionary cycles.

You can order them here. Buy a set for yourself and one for a friend!
