Lent Begins Next Week; Use This Free Lenten Reflections Booklet to Renew

Next week begins the season of Lent—a time when Christians come together to sacrifice in preparation for the Resurrection and Easter season. 

This year, American Life League is offering a free copy of the Lenten reflections booklet to all who would like to receive one. Susan Ciancio, director of ALL’s Culture of Life Studies Program, highlighted the book and its uses in a recent commentary.

Susan says, “We created a daily reflection booklet chock full of inspiration and encouragement for every day of Lent.”

She continues, “We start each day with a quote from Scripture, a saint, or the Catechism. Then we offer a reflection on that quote and a concrete suggestion for how to implement those words so that you can build a culture of life every day in your home or community. Our guide will help you on your journey to showing all people that they are loved and respected members of the human family and that we all have dignity from the first moment of creation until the day God calls us home. We even give suggestions for how to get your family involved!”

Here are some things the booklet suggests for reflection:

  • Think about someone who has wronged you. Pray for that person and pray for the ability to forgive.
  • What kind of special respect can you show to someone you know who is sick or disabled? Take some time out of your day to give your attention to someone who truly needs it.
  • Show your love for all of Christ’s children by giving voice to preborn babies today and showing their humanity to at least one person.
  • Take some time today to really watch the actions of your spouse or your children. Praise them for something good they’ve done and watch how their faces light up. This is the light of Christ.

The world and its problems may seem overwhelming, but to create change we must start with ourselves. That is where the Lenten reflections can help get you off to a great start. 

Commit with us to start anew this Lent.

Culture of Life Studies Program

Written in the early 7th or 8th century, “Dream of the Rood” was one of the first early Christian poems written in English. Recounting Christ’s passion and death from the perspective of the cross, “Dream of the Rood” recognizes the power of redemptive suffering and the Christian’s fundamental need for salvation. With early medieval literary devices, the poem describes Christ’s passion as a battle waged against sin and death. In this three-class study, high school students peel back the layers of imagery, language, and symbolism to reveal a message about the sacredness of all human beings present in medieval literature.
