Let the Apostleship of Prayer (The Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network) be your guide during Lent by helping you deepen your prayer life in the most solemn season of the year.  This powerful prayer book—based on the traditional spiritual practice of lectio divina (sacred reading)—will engage and inspire you with the Church’s daily scripture readings from Ash Wednesday through Easter Sunday.

Helping you enter into the most important season of the year, Sacred Reading for Lent 2018 provides opportunities for you to listen to God’s Word, prayerfully respond, and explore ways the gospel reading can be applied to your daily life.

Using a six-step process, the booklet will guide you through the Church’s daily Lenten gospel readings, as well as readings for solemnities and feast days, asking you to

  • know that God is present;
  • read the gospel;
  • notice what you think and feel;
  • pray for yourself and others;
  • listen to Jesus; and
  • ask God to show you how to live today.

Beginning with Ash Wednesday and continuing through Easter, this book is a catalyst for an intimate encounter with Christ by reading, reflecting, praying, and responding to the Word of God in a way that is both familiar and fresh.

The compact format and affordable price make this perfect for parishwide distribution during Lent.


"Convenient size and affordable."

Sacred Reading for Lent is a convenient size and affordable. We gave it to all of our parishioners. They really appreciated it and found it helped them develop a closer relationship with the Lord by doing as we are invited to during Lent—namely, pray more intensely and listen to Jesus.”

Rev. Tom Stehlik, C.M.
Pastor of St. Joseph Church
New Orleans, Louisiana

"It helps the scriptures become more alive and relevant."

“Our parishioners have used Sacred Reading to grow in their understanding of scripture during these special liturgical seasons. Encouraging them to pay attention to what they are thinking or feeling as they read the gospel opens their minds and hearts to see how it speaks to them at that moment.  It helps the scriptures become more alive and relevant in their everyday lives. This is something they can carry with them outside of Advent and Lent.”
