Daily Lenten Readings

Share the forty-day Lenten path with Henri Nouwen, from the solemn beginning of Ash Wednesday to the joyous renewal of Easter.  Each daily section offers a paragraph from the Bible, a reflection by the author, and a prayer.

The bestselling author helps us find meaning and inspiration in the 40 days of Lent. He encourages us to take some quiet time every day to listen to our hearts and in that intimate space to hear the guidance of Jesus. With attention and recognition of the divine in our lives, struggle, betrayal, and hardship can deepen and purify us, leading us closer to the simple peace and wholeness of the love of God.

Reviews and endorsements

“This Lenten meditation book begins each day with a brief scripture quote either drawn from the liturgy or based on the theme of a passage from Nouwen’s work. Then a selection from Nouwen is offered, along with a concluding prayer. This is an excellent resource for those seeking a daily prayerbook or prayer starter for the Lenten season.”
Spiritual Book News


“The longing and expectation of the 40 days of Lent are deeply expressed in this collection from Father Nouwen’s extensive writings. For each day, he offers a scripture guide for the path to Calvary and speaks as one who shares our difficulties in making the choice for Christ over the promises of worldly power and riches.”
The Bulletin


“These are excellent devotional materials for private or group use during Lent. The texts presented here prompt and guide the reader in prayer and recollection through Lent. Scripture, prayer, and meditation blend to allow the reader to translate faith into the reality of one’s own life.”
