I do not have anything too profound to share tonight. Exhaustion has set in from taking care of sick kids all week as well as being sick myself. I am however really looking forward to Lent which starts next Wednesday. Lent is my favorite liturgical season. There is so much grace available to go deeper into the heart of Christ through meditating on his passion and the cross. A book I read last Lent that was really beneficial in my spiritual life is called Consoling the Heart of Jesus: A Do It Yourself Retreat- Inspired by the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius by Rev. Michael E. Gaitley. I might read some of that book again as well as The Way of the Mystics: Ancient Wisdom for Experiencing God Today by John Michael Talbot.
