Take Up Your Cross And Follow
Daily Lenten Reflections
|Author: Boyer, Rev Mark G|
|Publisher: Alba House New York||Pages: 107|
This book consists of fifteen reflections based on the passion narratives in each of the four gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Each of the sixty reflections contains a title, a passage from Scripture, a reflection, a meditation, questions to assist in a person's private examination of conscience or for assistance in compiling a Lenten journal and concludes with a brief prayer. The author's idea behind this structure is to take the reader on a personal pilgrimage with Jesus through the gospels during Lent, highlighting his suffering, death and resurrection and applying the insights culled to everyday living. Each exercise is, therefore, designed to facilitate the reader's reflections, meditations and prayer. They are purposely kept short and simple so that they can be used profitably by the average very busy person at the beginning or end of each day in Lent.
