Reflections for Lent is designed to enhance your spiritual journey through the forty days from Ash Wednesday to Holy Saturday (14 February - 31 March 2018).
Covering Monday to Saturday each week, it offers reflections on readings from the Common Worship Lectionary, written by some of today's leading spiritual and theological writers.
Each day includes:
* Full lectionary details for Morning Prayer
* A reflection on one of the Bible readings
* A Collect for the day
This volume offers daily material for 14 February to 31 March 2018, taken from the Reflections for Daily Prayer 2017/18 annual edition.
It is ideal for individuals and groups seeking Lectionary-based reflections for use during Lent and Holy Week, or for anyone wishing to try Reflections for Daily Prayer before committing to a year's worth of material.
It also features a simple form of morning and night prayer and a guide to keeping a good Lent.

A good little Lent book. Thanks
Using this as a morning office and occasionally for compline. The reflections on the readings are thought provoking and challenging. Having the Morning Office printed is a great help and much appreciated.
