Lenten links of the day for 6 February 2008

It’s Ash Wednesday again, and time to begin Lent.  Like last year I plan to read a number of books on religious themes throughout Lent.  Unlike last year, I will post the book reviews as I go along instead of just one big post at the end of Lent.

I have some other plans of fasting, prayer and charity for Lent I’m keeping between me and God for now, but here are some interesting links for Lent:

Here’s hoping and praying that Lent is good for all!

One thought on “Lenten links of the day for 6 February 2008

  1. The Friday after Ash Wednesday reading is a particularly powerful statement on fasting:

    This, rather, is the fasting that I wish:
    releasing those bound unjustly,
    untying the thongs of the yoke;
    Setting free the oppressed,
    breaking every yoke;
    Sharing your bread with the hungry,
    sheltering the oppressed and the homeless;
    Clothing the naked when you see them,
    and not turning your back on your own.

    – Isaiah 58:6-7
