Preparing for Lent...

Over at my other blog, Saints Will Arise, I'm running a mini-series on Lenten practice in the Rule of St Benedict.

It is actually all very appropriate for all Catholics to consider, so I thought I'd just highlight the (very short!) posts so far:
  • the first part is about the practice of reading a book (Scriptural or some other spiritual text) right through;
  • the second is on offering something extra (inter alia) by way of private prayers, on which I'm proposing myself to focus on the penitential psalms, and so will share some background material on them.
The third part will look at that mainstay of Lent, fasting and abstinence!
