Lent books for 2022: short notices

21 January 2022

FOR those who find art helpful, and may pray the rosary already but wish to refresh their meditations, there is Lawrence Lew OP’s Mysteries Made Visible: Praying the rosary with sacred art (Cath­olic Truth Society, £12.95 (£11.65); 978-1-78469-733-4). His photos broaden the appeal of a distinct­ively Dom­in­ican publication, con­taining several Latin prayers and the Order’s own version of the Litany of the BVM: this image is one of the Stations of the Cross in the Sanc­tuary at Lourdes.

Sacred Space for Lent 2022 by the Irish Jesuits (Messenger Pub­lications, £4.50 (£4.05); 978-1-78812-494-2) builds once again on the popular website, with Bible-reading, points of reflection, a weekly topic, and six steps of prayer and meditation.

This is in pocket format, as are reflections on daily eucharistic readings (missal) in Not by Bread Alone by Amy Ekey and Thomas D. Stegman (Liturgical Press, £1.99 (£1.79); 978-0-8146-6607-4). A large-print version is also available from the same publisher (£4.99 (£4.49); 978-0-8146-6624-1).

The Church of England booklets tying in with the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent Book are #Live Lent: Embracing Justice (Adult single copy) (CHP, £1.99; 978-1-78140-259-7) and #Live Lent: Embracing Justice (Kids single copy) (CHP, £1.50; 978-1-78140-265-8), both titles also available in packs of ten and 50 (further details here)
