Six minutes a day. That’s what you’re asked to give from now until Easter. Each 24-hour day has 240 “six minute” packages. During Lent, one of those will be given to the Lord. The centerpiece of each day (except Sundays) is the Passion according to Mark, which is on the right-hand page. We’ll walk through the whole Passion a little bit at a time, and offer some reflections with each piece. Once you get into it you’ll find this practice to be peaceful, even something to look forward to. You’ll also find that it helps to make your day go a bit better. Prayer does that.

After an intense study of the Holy Spirit, Catherine Marshall wrote The Helper, detailing lessons she learned by living them out. She offers forty inspirational "helps," or readings, that contain Scripture, a prayer, and insight into the provocative third person of the Godhead. Also included are the answers Marshall discovered to questions like: Ž Who is the Helper? Ž How do I experience the Helper's presence? Ž How does the Helper meet everyday needs? Ž What is the Helper's role and function in the Church? The forty "helps" are ideal as a devotional guide for the forty days of Lent and for group or individual study. Just as the power of the Holy Spirit is needed every day to help us cope with the problems and complexities of life, so The Helper is a book for all seasons, with total sales of more than 1.2 million.

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU HAD A REALLY MEMORABLE LENT? People of every age yearn for God. This desire for God is written deep within the human heart. Whether we acknowledge it or not, we all have a longing to draw near to God and be in communion with him. We might not recognize this yearning for what it truly is, however. Instead we might seek to satisfy our longings with material things, relationships, careers all of which were never designed to truly fulfill us. All the while, God quietly waits for us in the depths of our souls. He uses our longings to lead us to himself. Lent is the perfect time to stop and reflect on the state of our souls, to examine the way we live our lives. What habits need to change? How can we live more intentionally? How can we grow in our faith? What would transformation look like? A vibrant spiritual life is a great gift, but we don't just stumble into it. Transformation happens when we look honestly at our desires and habits and seek real change with intentionality. During this Lenten time of renewal, let Matthew Kelly be your guide as you take time each day for prayer, reflection, and silence. As you seek the One who is seeking you, allow yourself to be inspired by new dreams and transformed by timeless spiritual disciplines. It s time to rediscover Lent . . .
