Last year, I tried a Lenten practice for the very first time... I took up writing for forty minutes every day. I know most of you might think of Lent as a time to give something up for forty days, but I wasn't so moved. And it was good.
This year -- and as it turns out, in congruence with my desire to grow into a more helpful person -- I'm taking up 40 days of praying. For you.
Well, maybe ;-)
This little book above is a month of guided prayers for morning, throughout the day and then in the evening. My practice is simple: Read the morning prayer and listen. Then read it again and identify a friend to bring before the Father and who I can share the prayer with. And continue throughout the day and into the evening.
So, if you get an email from me with a snippet from St. Teresa's thoughts, you were the one God brought to mind that day.
And it was good.
