IF I BE LIFTED UP (Daily Reflections for Lent) by George Lacey, OSB+
This book provides spiritual commentary on the daily lectionary readings for Lent, beginning with Ash Wednesday and concluding with Holy Saturday. The short ecumenical reflections - personal and prayerful in nature - focus mainly on the Gospel readings, though some address other readings as well. The Sunday reflections are based on the "A" cycle, which is considered the foundational cycle suitable for all years.
In these reflections, a new perspective is given to such familiar themes as temptation, forgiveness, loving one's enemy, bearing one's cross, doing good in secret, religious institutions, covenant, betrayal, hospitality, the prodigal and more. The style is warm, relaxed and mixed with humor. Homilists can use this book for inspiration.
