Reading for Lent

 

I think that this Lent, I will work through the book, The Sermons of St. Francis de Sales for Lent, Given in 1662.  Edited by Fr. Lewis Fiorelli, Translated by the Nuns of the Visitation.

I absolutely love Introduction to the Devout Life by St. Francis.  I know I like his writing.  I know I respond to his teachings and spirituality.  For some reason, though, reading this book of sermons for lent has been a challenge! I read a sentence or two, or a paragraph or two and I am just not there.  I close the book and forget about it for another year.  I really hope this year is different.  

 

How about you?  Do you have any reading planned for lent?
