    Lent

    This book is amazing! I have never been able to understand the way of lent, which is why I never made it special. But after going over this book, I decided to purchase it. I made a great choice by buying this book. It has helped me understand the true meaning of what it means to walk with God during lent. I really love this!

    I love this book! It's got everything. I'm having one of the best Lents I've had in years. Can't wait to buy the Advent Handbook.

    Great Prayer Book

    This is exactly what I needed for spiritual guidance over Lent. I would definitely recommend this book to a friend. I really appreciate that the book is very flexible in the sense that readers can choose what to do/read each day, and each day of the week. It has wonderful prayers, and deep yet simple reflections and guidance for meditations.

    The Essentia Lenten Handbook

    I love this book. It is easy to read and very informative. Every thing you need to know about Lent in this book. My husband recently became a Catholic and he finds this book very useful.

    A must have

    This was for me a good find as I am always searching for readings to help me through Lent. In past years I have felt that something was missing, I was not doing enough; but this handbook inspires me in my meditations, my prayers. I am very happy to have found it and I think that every practicing catholic should have a copy.
