40 Days, 40 ways to Grow Closer to God
For many Catholics, Lent is primarily a time to give something up or to engage in more food works. While not denying that these can be meaningful, Tim Muldoon believes that Lent is ultimately about internal change – that is, realigning our wills with God’s will be taking on the heart and mind of Christ.
In The Ignatian Workout for Lent, Muldoon helps us achieve this goal by offering 40 brief exercises organized according to the four “weeks” of prayer from the Spiritual Exercises. Each of the four sections contains ten exercises, and each exercise includes a short Scripture reading, meditation, prayer suggestion, and opportunity for action.
Written in readily accessible language, this Lenten-length experience of Ignatian spirituality invites us into a daily conversation with God, where obstacles to grace are removed and the world is nurtured.
