Product Description

Augustine's Confessions immortalized the path of his conversion, a humble and sincere testimony of a sinner who experienced unconditional love. In Lent with Saint Augustine, Waldemar Turek presents selected excerpts for each day of Lent from this pearl of spirituality and literature, while incorporating commentary that takes the cycle of liturgical readings into account. These reflections serve as a prayerful aid for living Lent spiritually, allowing the reader to better experience the sacred while returning to the sources of faith to celebrate the death and resurrection of Christ.

Editorial Reviews

These meditations on the Lenten liturgical readings illuminated by St. Augustine's adventure may help us to reset our lives and recognize the leading hand of God. The great Church Father's prayerful and grateful autobiography serves as a guide and inspiration for our own journey. The signs of grace accompany us, but do we take the time to notice them?
Wojciech Giertych, OP, Theologian of the Papal Household

Augustine of Hippo is the perfect guide through Lent. His brutal honesty became a confessio now rightly acknowledged as one of the greatest literary masterpieces. Father Turek shows us why by reading the Confessions precisely as they should be read: boldly and without the trappings of academic jargon. Anyone who spends a few minutes each day reading Fr. Turek's reflections will understand why Saint Augustine has become the "best friend" of so many Christians, including myself.
Msgr. Daniel B. Gallagher, papal latinist

Pairing an excerpt from St. Augustine's Confessions with commentary on Lent's liturgical readings, Turek provides a prayerful accompaniment for walking readers through the death and resurrection of Jesus.
