Phyllis Zagano explores the way both silence and stillness can help you turn your heart and mind to God in a more intentional way during Lent. She shows how important it is to detach ourselves from the busyness of everyday life to find stillness and silence—even if only for a few minutes of prayer each day.
Each day’s meditation contains:
• The Lectionary readings for the day
• A brief quote from one of the readings
• A meditation
• A prayer, or grace, for the day
