Loved it

Great daily Lenten reading

I always try to do some extra spiritual reading and prayers during Lent. This book fit the bill very nicely. The writings of Pope Francis are very readable and understandable to the everyday Christian. I was uplifted in this daily Lenten practice.

The Hope of Lent: Daily Reflections from Pope Francis

Since first reading of Francis's 2015 encyclical on the Environment I've come to admire and listen to the word's Pope Francis often.

The Hope of Lent has been a daily companion that I've shared with family and friends.

Truly the world is blessed by having this holy, spirit filled personage as a leader during these times of trial.

His daily words and prayers have let me to experience God's blessings of grace, joy and love as an abiding reality in my life.

The Hope of Lent is a great book inspired by a great Pope; we are all blessed.

A Daily Gift

As I close this book following the final reflection on the Second Sunday of Easter, I am feeling the sadness and loss of a good friend moving away. Each morning for nearly two months, I have met with our Pope and Ms. Houdek to begin my day. The Hope of Lent was well written, inspiring, and brief enough to counter any excuse of not having enough time! Thanks for a great Holy Season!

She is a professed Secular Franciscan with a bachelors degree in English and history from Marquette University and a masters degree in English literature from Northwestern University.
