As a liturgical season marked by its own urgency and intensity, Lent lends itself to reflection. Bishop Robert Morneau offers such reflections in this day-by-day volume, which also includes meditations for Easter and feast days that often fall in Lent. With themes as varied as Humility: The Divine Achilles Tendon and Health Care Plan, Moses: The Lawyer and The Jesus Question, Morneau anchors his reflections in Scripture from the daily Mass. Drawn into the church's multiyear calendar of readings, readers will enhance their participation in the Eucharist and appreciate more fully the deeper meaning of this special season.
Bishop Robert F. Morneau is pastor of Resurrection Parish in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and also the auxiliary bishop of the Diocese of Green Bay. He is a regular columnist for the diocesan paper, The Compass.
