During Lent the Church puts before us special
readings for each day, helping us to prepare for the great events of
Holy Week, which culminates with the resurrection of Our Lord. Using
insights from a lifetime of scriptural scholarship Henry Wansbrough uses
these readings to provide timeless and inspiring meditations for the
forty days of Lent and each of the Sundays (Year A) of the season. He
ends each of the meditations with a suggested action to help the reader
apply biblical revelations to daily life. These acts will revive a
desire for Godís spirit to empower us to follow Christ more fully Ė not
only during the forty days of Lent, but throughout the whole year.
Henry Wansbrough is a renowned Biblical scholar who regularly writes
exegesis and commentaries on scripture. He was General Editor of the New
Jerusalem Bible. He is a Benedictine monk of Ampleforth.
