Lenten reading

Feb. 17, 2010, at 12:03pm

This great idea came in from a friend yesterday:

The chapter in DvH’s Transformation in Christ called ‘True Simplicity’ makes great reading in preparation for Lent.  If you haven’t read the entire book yet, you might find that chapter helpful in getting “motivated” about Lenten penitential practices.  (Maybe you’re already sufficiently motivated?!)  So many discussions of Lenten penitence focus on the disciplinary aspect—developing the habit of giving up things voluntarily in order to be able to resist a temptation when it becomes necessary—without highlighting the positive value of creating a state of interior simplicity.
