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?
