We prepare for the celebration of Christ’s Resurrection during Lent, a period of 40 days of fasting and prayer, starting on Ash Wednesday and concluding on Holy Thursday. Lenten meditation and prayer books will help you to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for Christ’s ultimate sacrifice and supreme act of love and mercy for each and every one of us. Divine Mercy Sunday is celebrated on the Octave of Easter (the Sunday after Easter Sunday) so you can include the Divine Mercy in your Easter preparation.
