Editorial Reviews

"Love for the Sacred Heart of Jesus has been a staple of Christian spirituality. Lent is a splendid time to renew it, and this book is a good way to begin." —Timothy M. Dolan, Archbishop of New York


"Links the noble tradition of devotion to the Sacred Heart to the rediscovery of the baptismal character of Lent in a way that enriches the Forty Days for everyone." —George Weigel, distinguished senior fellow, Ethics and Public Policy Center

The first parish I attended in the teeny tiny town closest to us was named for the Sacred Heart of Jesus, so this book caught my eye. I wondered, before I checked it out, how this one seemingly limited topic could be applied to each day in Lent. And then I spent a bit of time reading the reflections. Each day opens with a Scripture verse and has a bite-sized meditation. The closing prayer and petition to the Sacred Heart, though, are where I found the most appeal. They are down-to-earth and accessible, even for someone who finds the Sacred Heart a bit of a challenging concept, as I do. Time spent with this book during Lent is sure help the reader grow in a devotion that will benefit more than just the individual. —CatholicMom.com
