Book Review - Bringing Lent Home With St. John Paul II - Prayers, Reflections and Activities for Families



Don’t begin Lent without this book!

When was the last time, you journeyed through Lent as a family? Have you ever suggested praying, fasting and giving alms together?  Don’t think your family has the time to do these things?  Not sure how to begin?

You are probably no different from countless other Catholic families who want to more fully live out their Faith but sometimes feel the demands on their time render it impossible to do so. But you can make next Lent a special and blessed experience for you and your entire family.

How? Get a copy of Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle’s most recent family Lenten prayer aid, Bringing Lent Home with St. John Paul II – Prayers, Reflections and Activities for Families.

Drawing from the wisdom and life of St. John Paul II, Donna-Marie sets forth an easy to follow daily plan that allows every member to grow in their Faith and better grasp the real meaning of Lent. You will come to appreciate the joy and grace that flows from fasting and almsgiving.  The author provides clear and concrete “how to” suggestions.

I was privileged and blessed to read Bringing Lent Home with St. John Paul II – Prayers, Reflections and Activities for Families. You and your family will be too.

There is much in this powerful book that I intend to ponder at greater length this Lent. I highly recommend that you get your copies now. I have no doubt God will use this little gem to touch the hearts, stir the souls and re-ignite the Faith of all those who journey through Lent with it.
